"Roses Are Red, Dear, Violets Are Blue..."

"Angels in Heaven, know I love you.  Know I love you dear, know I love you.  Angels in Heaven know I love you!"  Did you know that is the 2nd verse of "Down In The Valley"?  I think I learned it when I was a kid but had forgotten it.  When I think of it now, in my head I hear that great big prisoner in the movie "Green Mile" (I think) singing it.  He had a beautiful voice and that was such a touching scene. 

Anyway......it's Tuesday Throwdown day!  Our theme is "Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue" and we are sponsored by Simply B Stamps.    Boy!  She has some awesome stuff!  I was honored to get to use her "My Funky Valentine Betty" and here's what I created:

 I did a lot of practicing on this girl before I got her colored good enough to use!  I colored 3 images before I got the clothes right and 2 more trying to get the hair right!  But in the end, I'm very happy with this card!
