WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE {ArtByMiran}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Wishing all my wonderful Followers the best that 2014 has to offer. I have been playing with this gorgeous Cupid's Little Helper created by the talented Mi Ran.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  Also visit Mi Ran's blog {Art by Miran} here.  You can purchase Cupid's Little Helper here.

I am so honoured to have been invited to be part of Mi Ran's design team and am proud to announce that I did not even blink when the invite came my way, and am now formally a design team member for Mi Ran and have the wonderful privilege of designing with her gorgeous images.

No surprise then once again, as I stuck to my favourite centre step design.  The folded embellishments have been created with a Fold It Swirls Template.  She has been coloured with Copics and the brads are from my stash.  The flourishes have been stamped with Chiswick Acrylic Stamps and the sentiment is a freebie from Hannelie {Desert Diva}and has been coloured with dry chalks. The design papers are from Art from my Heart and BasicGrey.
