Tilda with Hanging Heart - My First Valentine's Day Card!

Happy Monday/Tuesday fellow Maggie lovers!  Last night I made a very simple and quick card using some beautiful Making Memories "Je t'Adore" cards from their card pak!  There are 5 different designs and 3 are my favorite so here's the first one:
I apologize for the lousy quality.  It's been overcast and rainy and not much sun and, I'm not a good photographer!  Anyway, I cut the card in half (you'll see a full shot below) and used the front of the card for my card front which is an A2 in size.  I die cut a Loopy Circle with my SB die, then die-cut a circle to fit the center, and wove a string of pearls in the loops.
This is "Tilda With Hanging Heart" that I got from Diana's Magnolia-licious store.  You can click on my sidebar to get to her store.
Tilda is stamped with Memento tuxedo black on PTI select white CS (my favorite!) and colored with Copics (colors listed below), cut out, and adhered with foam tape to the matted piece.  I also punched out the heart using a MS "Lace Scallop Heart" punch, and a Marvy scallop heart punch from pink vellum.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts "Stencil Prints" set.  I then used the back or bottom half of the MM card for the inside of my card and again, kept it very simple:

Here is a pic of the MM card laid down flat:
Oooops, sorry, there are 5 different designs in the card pack and I just noticed my error on the pic where it say 4, but it's 5 designs and 4 cards each.  These cards are beautiful in itself and you can also get matching envelopes!  I just wanted to put my own spin on them!  Quick, simple, easy card!
Copic colors used:
Dress:  R83, 81, RV00 (dotted using Sharpie Ex-Fine white pen)
Heart ribbon:  R39, 37
Hair:  E35, 33, 51
Skin:  E00, 50, R00
Wings:  BG10, covered with glue pen and Prisma glitter
That's it!  Thank you for taking the time to swing by today.  I'll have another Valentine's Day card to share tomorrow, then I'll be going on a mini vacation from Thursday.  Thank you all for also sharing your creativity and inspiration.  I've learned from many of you out there in blogland!
