Hearts and flowers

Happy Saturday afternoon everyone.
I am just taking 5 minutes out to post this. My son is having a stayover tonight (no sleeping involved!!) for 6 of his friends to celebrate his 15th birthday on Monday. This is going to be one hell of a night I'm afraid. My husband and I will be retreating into my craftroom for the duration. Wish me luck.

Here is today's card - 
I began by making a shaped card base using a 8 inch card blank and Go Kreate's XXL square frame frilly #2. I then matted and layered the base using the same die set and papers from First Edition's Desert blooms paper pad. I then cut a Die'sire Heart doily from another of the papers and added it to the top carner of the card as shown. The image is Tilda with spring heart which I coloured with the following Spectrum Noirs - 
  • skin - FS7, FS8, FS9 and PP4
  • hair - GB8, GB9 and GB10
  • dress, shoes and bows - PP1, PP2 and PP4
  • shadow - BG1 and BG3
  • sky - IB1
  • heart - paper pieced using a paper from the paper pad
I cut the image out using Spellbinder's heart circle die, inked whilst still in the die with spun sugar distress ink and attached it to the card with foam pads. I cut several Doohickey vintage daises, layered them and secured them with a pearl brad (from the Ribbon Girl). I attached them to the card as shown. To finish I added 2 LaLa Land heart ribbon corners.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - - #229 hearts and flowers - week 247 ladies day - pink plus one - pink and brown
