I am sharing a card featuring one of the cuties from the Chickie Love stamp set and the new Heart Flower Edge die.  Combine them together to create a heart filled card.


Everything on this card is colored up with Zig Watercolor markers.   These are my go to markers...I can't remember the last time I used Copics.   I will say the blending on the balloons took 2 tries...that overlap got me the first time around!
