Just Magnolia Challenge - Hearts and Flowers

Well its been a very busy week for me, and I just hope it never happens again, I felt a bit like a conveyor belt, but never mind I suppose I ought to be happy that is now over and I can take a bit of a rest. Monday is Challenge three for Cards for Men so I do hope that you will all take part in this and of course visit my DT team members to see their work on Monday morning, my card will also be posted then as well.
This weeks Just Magnolia Challenge is "Hearts and Flowers, and Ive used two of last years Love stamps, I stamped the Tilda image onto white card then masked her before stamping the heart, I notice I didnt quite get it straight hope you wont mind to much about that. Anyway Ive coloured my image with my copic pens then punched it out with my Label Nestabilitie die, I then drew around the die to create the mount for it, the sentiment is one of Hobby Arts and Ive done exactly the same with this as I did with the image.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, onto which I have layered up one of 5 designs from the new Butterfly Kisses Collection from Nitwit Downloads, the first one is a lovely all over patchwork design mounted on pink pearlescent card. The second and third layers are similar designs of hearts and dots, one in green and the other pink, these were punched along the edge with my new looped heart punch from Martha Stewart, and then stuck beneath the fourth mount, this one is a green one with hearts all over this one was mounted onto green card, and the fifth mount is dark pink card with an opposite colour design to the green one but in pink, around the middle I have stuck a pink ribbon with the word Love on it, this was then stuck across the card.
Ive then mounted my image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom to the right hand side, I punched out two hearts from pearlescent card in two shades of pink and stuck them at the top on the right. The last thing is the flower arrangement thats been made from three roses and four cherry blossoms, wired together, after which Ive sprayed it with some silver glitter from Crafters Companion, and attached it to the top on the left hand side.
