Valentine Candy Basket

Silke had this adorable little sketch posted for this weeks Tuesday Challenge over at Flourishes and I thought I would ink up some of the Valentine stamps and play along. Fins all the details of the challenge HERE.
 I loved this little candy basket image, fun to color and embellish too. I pulled my papers from My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad "Love Me". The sketch was a quick and easy one to follow. After choosing my papers, I added Kraft paper in the mix and added a kraft layer to all the long rectangles using Perfect Layers Rulers.
 When I am adding piercing around the edges of a Nestie shape, I keep it in the die. And follow the edge of the die to add my piercing. While they may not be perfectly spaced... it does help me to have the edge to follow.
 Here are the Copics I used to color the image. LOTS of pinks. Not my norm, lol!
 On the inside of the card I added a sentiment from Flourishes Heartlines set. Love this sweet little set! A piece of left over DP added along the bottom of the liner.
Love the Parisian Motif Dies mixed up with the Circles, you can see how the circle tucks right under the motif edges. I did pop several layers up with foam tape, adding a little dimension. I used the Clear Effects Gel Pen to add a little shine to the XOXO and the little dots in the image... giving it a glossy shine.
