A Toxic Valentine

Hi All!  I know the title of this post is kind of funny but it just so happens that my image is from the Sweet & Toxic set by The Greeting Farm...and for some reason (probably because I'm a girl) when I think of the set I always think of the boy as the 'toxic' out of the two :)  I had quite a bit of fun with this one I must admit- I'm entering a few challenges and used the sketch from the Tickled Pink Stamp Challenge blog only to find out that even though they carry this stamp it's not eligible for the challenge.  But that's okay because the sketch led me to this awesome card so it's all good :)  Note to self though, make sure to ask if you aren't sure an image counts!
One of the things, as silly as it might sound, that makes me smile when I look at this card is the fact that I finally managed to pull off blond hair!  I'm still relatively new to Copics and have to say that blond hair has been my nemesis but I have finally prevailed!  I'm sure it will get better but I'm just glad it looks blond instead of yellow :)  It's the little things in life, you know?
I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:All That Scraps Wednesday's Challenge- Early Valentines; Papertake Weekly Challenge- Ribbons & Pearls
