Love Bug Hug

 Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! It's not too soon to start thinking about Valentine's Day. Just sayin'...Here's a pretty quick & easy card using some cute new images. I really like the look of colored pencil on kraft so that's what I thought I'd try w/ this chubby little Love Bug  I put the kraft panel into my Misti, then colored him using Prismacolor pencils. After overstamping it to bring the outlines back, I attached a red strip that I had die cut the hearts down the side, then die cut the whole thing w/ a stitched rectangle die. The greeting was stamped on a little strip & I added two black brackets (as in the {hugs} shorthand) & attached some of the cut out hearts.
Here's a look at the inside. A few more hearts were added & I used a leftover strip of the red as a stencil for the pink hearts. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
