MFT Getting Sketchy with Pure Innocence

Got another card using My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamps that I wanted to share - this one is for the Sketch Challenge. Here is my take:
And here is the sketch: 

I used Basic Grey's Picadilly Collection again (LOVE it) and paper pieced my image. Used Copics for the hair and skin. 
The edge on the bottom of the image is cut with a Martha Stewart border punch, and the edges of everything are inked with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen and/or Vintage Photo. I also pop-dotted the image piece from the background for some dimension. 
The cute little heart was cut on my Cricut using Plantin Schoolbook, inked, and covered with Diamond Glaze. Also added some PTI buttons to the bottom and some faux stitching around the edges. 
And when I was all done, it needed something more, so I stamped some hearts using the Peachy Keen Valentine Cupids set that I won recently - and colored them in with white gel pen.

Thanks for visiting!
