Rogue Redhead Victorian Valentine

Hello!  I'm trying desperately to get back to the land of art and papercrafting.  Our family have been on the go nonstop with sports.  I did, however, get a quiet moment today to create a flowery little number in the style of a Victorian scrap Valentine.  All of the floral images are from Rogue Redhead Designs' Floriculture plate, and the sentiment is from the Snow Hugs plate.  The floral images are stamped and colored with Copics (with the exception of the ferns, which are simply stamped in green ink).  The flowers and sentiment are layered over the top of a red paper doily and some patterned paper that I ran through a Tim Holtz Postmark embossing folder.  Of course, everything is shabby chic-ed up with some Distress Ink, in antique linen vintage photo, and tattered rose.

I hope everyone's staying safe and warm!

I am loving all these sweet and soft layers. I love the way you haloed the lily of the valley with soft hues and the doily is awesome!
