Kraftin' Kimmie - Clara Valentine's Day Card

I've been at the craft desk once again! I have a whole range of Valentine's cards up in store now! And, just for being a blog reader, you can get 20% off until Monday, just use coupon code BlogLove on checkout!
Here is the card I have to share today - 
I actually started this card a couple of days ago, and it just wasn't working for me... I had coloured Clara (from Kraftin' Kimmie) three times before I was happy with her, then because it had taken so long, I wasn't happy with the papers, or the style for the card. So, left Clara on my desk, to come back to. I used a mix of really old My Minds Eye patterned paper and new Pink Paislee, doodled around the edges, wrapped some seam binding ribbon and some new pink satin ribbon, I picked up at Spotlight a week ago, and tide a big bow. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, and is the heart punchie.

She's very cute, Kimmie! Sometimes we just need to let something sit and come back to it, and then it works fine! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
