In Style Stamps Sneak Peek

InStyle Stamps has 6 new images coming out tomorrow for Valentine's Day ~ 3 Anime images and 3 Retro images.  Today I get to share one of the Anime images with you.  

This is Valentine Ava ~ isn't she adorable!?!  I decided to make a little treasure box for one of my daughters ~ although I'm not sure which one yet ~ so instead of personalizing it, I just added a monogram (good thing both of their names start with the letter "A").  I added the ribbon to the corner with the flower in the center so it looked like a bow on a package.  The edges of the base papers have been distressed (sanded down) so they blended in with the white of the box better.
