Card Makin' Mamas - Hearts

This is my last DT card for Card Makin's Mamas. I have come to the end of my 3 month term and have decided to step down from the team ..

So, here it is .. the theme this fortnight is Hearts so as long as your card features hearts somewhere on your card, you can enter!! Our sponsor this time is Close To My Heart and there is a stamp set up for grabs!!

My hearts are on the backing paper, in the little girl's hair and the pearly heart in the corner ...

I am so chuffed with how this card has turned out. I bought these 'Chocolate Lovers' papers the other day from Cuddly Buddly and I knew they would be perfect for this challenge. The image is 'Marion' by Mo Manning and ain't she cute!! I have coloured her with my ProMarkers, oh and the kitty too!!

I love these Fleur De Lys squares dies by Spellbinders and I haven't used them for ages. It's not easy getting an image that fits .. however, I did it and I think the frame looks fab. Everything is matted onto kraft, which is distressed with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Sentiment is also from Cuddly Buddly, from the 'Wee Ones' sentiment set. The silk ribbon and silver butterfly are from the Ribbon Girl, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls are The Hobby House. The pearl hearts were a craft gift!

Got a new stand to display my cards on too from Dunelm Mill! 79p for two, talk about a bargain! Just makes it look a bit better when taking a pic ..

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Mo's Digital Challenge - Lovely Layers
I Love ProMarkers - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

So nice easy one this time over at Card Makin' Mamas - look forward to seeing all your creations!

Happy Crafting!
