Time for another AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge. SAY IT WITH....POLKA DOTS.

Polka Dots are so fun...I took the opportunity to make a Valentine. I used LIL BEE'S BIG FLOWERS from AnnaBelle Stamps.

I embossed him on watercolor paper, colored him with Tombow markers then cut him out. I embossed, colored and cut out the heart to hide his cut off hands that hold the flowers. I could not resist using AnnaBelle sprinkles for his trail and flourishes.
