Va-Va-Valentines by Power Poppy

Good morning, Friends! It is time for another Power Poppy coloring project! I spent some time after returning from Jenn Dove's Boot Camp filling up my markers! Then, I got busy making this quickie card for y'all. 
This fun image is from the Va-Va-Valentines digital set, which you can download for $10. It contains six images and four extra sentiments. And, since it is digital, you can print the images small for a little tag, or in A2 size like I did, or in any size you like!
I created a 5 3/4" x 4 1/2" card - a bit larger than standard A2 note card size. I made a little mistake in sizing my image and it was all colored before I realized that it was just a tiny bit too big for an A2 card! Oopsie!

I used a little bit of the Authentique Love Notes paper (again!). Yes, that sweet paper is still out on my desk! I am really getting into more simple cards. Not that I plan to abandon my "kitchen sink" cards, but sometimes I really enjoy just a little fuss without getting out everything in the studio!   
I colored the image with Copics and then added some white gel pen to some random areas. I can see that the white pen I added to the word "totally" got a little smudged. Let's blame the cats and move on! It is one of those things I never see until it is blown up giant-sized on the computer! Then, who has time to retake and edit photos?!
I had it in my head to color the radio blue, for some reason. Then I decided to keep the flowers and hearts in traditional Valentine red and pink! It works, I guess! I like the colors at any rate! I love that pop of blue with the pink and red!
Here is a list of the markers I used:

Pink hearts: RV14, RV13, RV23
Red flowers and hearts: R59, R46, R56
Yellow stamens: Y15, Y19, Y02
Green leaves: YG17, YG25, YG03, YG21, G28, G24, YG67
Radio: B06, B04, B02, B01, B00, B000, B0000, C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C0
Shadow: C3, C1, C0, Blender
