Valentine Girl

Good Morning Friends,

Do you like the color combination of pink and black?  It seems to me that most people have very strong emotions about this, they either love it or hate it.  I love it, my craft room is pink and black.

I found this little Valentine girl on Aurora Wings and decided I would make her with a pink and black theme.  I did use red for the hearts but the rest is pink or black.

I usually find something not to like in my coloring.  I am taking classes over at Kit & Clowder and Alyce is always telling us to find something we like.  I like the way I colored her eyes.

What do you think?

Recipe for this card:

Digital Image - Valentine Girl
