Hello All...I hope you had a fabulous weekend!!! I was out of town this weekend and haven't had much time to stamp till today. My Bellas finally came in and I couldn't wait to ink them up!!! :D I went to my LSS and found some cute paper I wanted to use for a Valentine card, and I also picked up some Stickles (gotta love those stickles)!!!! It took me forever to figure out what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to use Balloonabella!!! This card is 51/2 x 5 1/2. I used pencils to color her, and I used a copic marker (skin white) to color her legs and face! :D I also used my new Stickles (fruit punch) to add some shimmer to the balloons, it looks great in person. I think she came out cute and I am really happy with the outcome of this card, except for one thing! I was trying to tie the ribbon on the card and something must have been wet on my table and got on her black dress and it smeared a black pencil mark past her arm. Does anyone know how I can touch that up without ruining the card! You may not be able to see it but it's there and it's killing me! I love this card so much, but the perfectionist in me takes over and I want to fix it, but I don't want to make it worse. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Stamps: February Word Puzzle (CTMH), Balloonabella Paper: My Minds Eye, Black & White Daisy CS (CTMH) Ink: Black (CTMH) Other: Pencils, Fruit Punch Stickles, Sparkles & Black Ribbon (CTMH), Pink Ribbon (American Crafts), Pop Dots, Circle Punch

Have a Fabulous Day!!! :D
