This week's challenge is being sponsored by Paper Pretties and the theme is "From the Heart".

The digi I chose to use from Paper Pretties is "Ballet Sophia" and I just love this stamp.  I think this stamp works on two levels (From the heart) The love of Ballet, The love of Dancing, The love of watching Ballet and the Valentine love which is this week's theme.

I used copics and polychromos pencils to colour the image.  I used a silver calligraphy pen to create the border edges.

Papers:  digi papers strips and dot from Jak Heath, Plain cardstock from Crafters Companion. 
Dies used:  Heart die - Spellbinders (cuts and embosses)
Embellishments: Ribbon, decorative gems - from QVC, Flowers - Wildorchid

Please check out the other DT's blogs for more wonderful inspiration and ideas and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
