Love is a Four - Legged Word!!

Hello everyone....I made a card with the cute little Mimi from the Mimi Stamp and Die Combo from Taylored Expressions. She is so cute and fun to color...I used Copics  and watercolored the background and the heart.

The sweet sentiment is from the same set and it was stamped with TE Oreo ink on the TE Stitched Heart Stacklets cutout. The background layers of watercolor paper and TE's  Lavender Glaze cardstock were cutout with TE's Stitched Rectangle Stacklets, The grass was cutout of TE's Granny Smith cardstock with the Grass Border Die and the Silhouette Stems 4 die was used for the flowers.
