Too much pink? Too many hearts?

Good morning all and hope that your week is going well? Wednesday again already! My daughter starts back at uni next week, but my youngest started back at school yesterday - and I don't think the early start was too popular! Or the homework! But I'm sure they like being back in routine really, and the chance to catch up with all their friends.
It's a cold but bright morning here today - yippee! Yesterday was grey rainy gloom all day - and I'm sure I must have some form of this Seasonal Affective Disorder because it makes me feel so low! So I'm particularly grateful for some brightness today - especially as I have a stinky horrible cough (which is driving me mad!) - so I'll get wrapped up and Tilly the Dog & I can go for a walk later on!

I wanted to share a card today that I made with another of the new January releases from Whimsy digital stamps

This digi stamp is from MarikaCollins called 'Alex'.  I think because of the heart shaped balloons I was thinking about Valentine's Day cards, but have a feeling that I got a bit carried away with the pink and hearts!

I've coloured her with promarkers (with a little pencil for details) and then used some Glossy Accents and a light sprinkle of glitter on the balloons!  The backing papers are freebies that were in my stash and some LOTV Nitwit paper, matted with coredinations card. The sentiment stamp is a Whimsy one (I love their Ticket sentiments - I've used them SO much lol!), the sheer ribbon is from Joanna Sheen and the pin & pearl from stash. 
Hope you like it!  Do pop over to Whimsy and have a look at the fantastic range of digi stamps that their talented artists produce - there's definitely something for everyone! 
Back soon,
Kim x
