Happy Valentines Day!!

I wish you chocolate covered strawberries and champagne!! But you will have to settle for a new challenge from Squigglefly ; )
This week our challenge is a non traditional Valentines with this recipe thrown in:
Purple, Brads, Paper Piercing and hearts.
That's quite a list but it was actually pretty easy. Here's what I came up with:

I just love her! She's got that far away look in her eye. Her name is Fairy Jenna and you can find her here.
Here's a few close ups:

Creating that dot background was a lot of fun. I made a tutorial last month and if you'd like, you can view it here.
The sentiment was computer generated.
I hope you will get the chance to enter the challenge this week. I can't wait to see of those lovely purple creations!!

Wow Dana, this is a gorgeous card. OK, I am not surprised by that as your cards are always gorgeous!! I love the circle of glitter around your image. Your image is of course colored beautifully!!! I love all the added dimension to your card. That is quite a list of must haves for one card, but you incorporated everything beautifully!!!
