Retro Fresh Wednesday At the Farm!

Hey everyone!  Time for this month’s Retro Fresh challenge over at The Greeting Farm!  This month our theme is hearts, just in time for Valentine’s day!  Just remember to use an older (at least 6 months) stamp for this challenge.

I have used Cheeky Chat for my card today.  I stamped her on to Copic X-press it and colored with copic markers, the rest is pretty basic, if you have questions please ask and I will help.
