Hugs and Kisses...Be Mine Miss Anya Love

I'll admit it....I am a procrastinator....I usually wait until the night before I actually need a card for one of my kids before I start it....and, if I don't get it done that night I am frantically trying to finish up before they come home from school.  Well, I decided to actually try and get their Valentine's Day cards done before the actual day and finished one of four.  Now let's just hope when the time comes I remember where I put them ;)  

I bought this paper last year before Valentine's Day, but never ended up using instead of buying more new Valentine's Day paper, I decided to use what I had.  Good thing I still have a bunch of SU's retired Mauve Mist is a perfect match for this collection!  I decided to use this stamp from the Miss Anya Love set because she had hearts on her dress and bows.  Anya is colored with copics and I added some stickles to her outfit as well as Crystal Effects on her shoes.  The chair and rug were paper pieced and I added some hear pearls to the arms of the chair in place of the "buttons" that were on there.  The second layer of the chair (bottom and arms) was put on with dimensionals.  I added some rhinestones and a bow to finish it off.

Now to decide which of my daughter's will receive this card....

I wanted to enter TGF's Friday Spy Day challenge, because I really loved the layout of it, but I didn't finish in time, so I am entering this in their Retro Fresh: Lucky in Love challenge.  I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
