You'd better BE MINE

My crafting has come to a halt lately due to some kind of cold I can't get rid of. It's nothing bad, I just feel under the weather and have so for the last 2 weeks. Because of this I haven't felt very creative or had the energy to craft. With that said I want to show you a card I made for this week's challenge at Kraftin' Kimmies (among others).

KK are having a GDT call and you need to enter every challenge in february. One of my crafting goals and dreams is to at least be invited as a guest designer for KK, so I couldn't give up this chance no matter how I felt. Unfortunately I don't think this card is my best work, but it's as good as I could make it concidering. I had the idea for this funny sentiment together with the stamp and although the execution might not be as brilliant I think the idea is.

I used one of the older stamps called Drucilla and coloured her with promarkers. I inked the edges with distress ink and stamped swirls with versamark ink which I then drychalked. I went over her hair with a clear sakura gelly roll to add sparkle and notice the little hearts in her eyes ;) Isn't she the cutest stalker you've ever seen, lol?
The two hearts are cut out with nesties and the red one is embossed with a sizzix folder and then rubbed with a white inkpad. The border next to the image is a Martha Stewart punch called doily heart I think. I added little dots in the corners with liquid pearls and handwrote the sentiment.
