 REALLY?!?!?!? Isn't she just too cute for words!!!
I love her!!! <3 <3 <3

In my SECOND use of Copic markers I really wanted her be to be different. 
The peachy-pink face is just what I wanted. 

I then tried my first attempt at paper piecing her lil' body stripes together. 
I used different papers for each stripe AND her tiny lil' stinger/tail! 
I hope in my detail pictures you will notice the black sparkly paper! love it!
I added a jewel to her paper pieced butterfly, 
and some green grass from the Cutie Cat set.

For the rest of the card, I took some red paper embossed with a heart pattern 
and the purple stock I used for one of the body stripes. I die cut our large sentiment flag 
from the Flags and Tags Set. (that you must get before they are GONE here

With another, go to die from the Flags and Tags set, 
I cut a swirly tag out of some paper that says 
"bloom twitter flutter grow frolic BUMBLE spring blossom" randomly,
 AND has lil' flowers too! 
You all know me and my typographic papers! hehehe!
Could it be any more perfect??? 

OH yeah!!! Just add our BEEautiful sentiment "Just Bee-Cuzzz" 
and the coordinating scalloped border and TA-DA instant Valentine's Day Card! 
Finished with a flowing bow. 

Here are a few more detail pictures for my 2 CUTE Card...
