Valentine's Day card with Di's Digi Stamps Have the Micest Day Digi

Valentine's Day card with Di's Digi Stamps Have the Micest Day digi, colored with Luminance 6901 pencils, by Paperesse.

Happy Valentine's Day! I've never limited Valentine's Day cards to just my romantic partner; I enjoy sending them to friends and family, too (as noted on this non-traditional Valentine post), but this year the day just sneaked up on me and this one for my husband is the only one I managed to make. I did send some Jackie Lawson e-cards, however. Not quite the same, but at least family/friends know they're thought of.

The digi is from Di's Digi Stamps New 24 collection – Have the Micest Day. The digital paper is Prettygrafik's Valentine Deer. Just a note on the paper – I thought it was more red when I chose it (I was going for a red/pink scheme), but when printed it looks dark orange. I adjusted my coloring accordingly. This is the reason I color to match my paper and not the other way around! Enamel dots give a bit of bling.
