sweet thing

Hello to all.

I have a seven year old boy.  Who has the biggest crush on a seven year old girl.  And hounded me every day since last week to make her something for valentines day.  I left it a little late but here it is.

I have used an image from Saturated Canary called Puppy Luv.  Perfect for my smitten boy and his gal.  Coloured it in with my copics, propped it up with foam tape, and propped the heart window on top also with foam tape.
Over at Saturated Canary Challenge blog, they have a colour inspiration challenge.  I have chosen my colours according to this challenge.
For the layout of the card I have followed the sketch from Sketch 'n' Stash for its current sketch challenge.  I flipped the sketch around and used a heart frame instead of an oval frame.  To play along in this challenge you need use either your newest or most neglected stash.  My most neglected stash is the DP I used.  Its a paper pack called Cabana by Inque Boutique.  Got it some time last year and haven't touched it since. 

The sentiment says "sweet thing".  Which is exactly what my boy thinks of his girl.
Finished my card off with a bow made from sheer ribbon and flower buttons.

So what do you think??  Will she like the card enough to like the boy too??

Thankyou for stopping by.
