Now on to what I created...

I created this Valentine for my brother who lives in South Korea.  I loved how cute the PI image is in that adorable aviator suit!

I used this MFT sketch as inspiration.  I ♥ to use sketches when creating cards!

Isn't she a doll? :)  I colored her up with my Copics and paper-pieced her outfit.  I colored her goggles, cuffs, and aviator pin using my red Atyou Spica Glitter Pen.

I used some gorgeous laces from the Creating is Fun shop.  I layered a bit of neutral lace on top of the beautiful pale blue lace.  I love how flat these laces are, so they don't add a lot of bulk since I will be mailing this card.

And here's a peek at the inside...
