Lenny Love

My Sketch Saturday DT card is beneath this post :)

This is a card for my daughter to give to her boyfriend, using another cute image from Stamp Fairy. I coloured Lenny with promarkers, although my caramel promarker is almost empty (as you can probably tell), I had to dab on the colour as best I could, but actually I think that it helped with the look of teddy fur :)
The background paper is my own design, says the words love, harmony, devotion on it.
The sentiment tags were text printed on the pc, then handcut, layered onto kraft card and cut again, using my cropadile to punch the holes and set the eyelets. Tied to the glitter strip with red twine.
Added a red diecut heart and a crystal gem to finish.
