One Card for Two Challenges

Ive created one card for two challenges, Mo's "Pink, Red and White and include a Heart", and Cute Card Thursday "In the name of Love" and I thought I would combine the two and make the above. Ive used one of Mo's gorgeous images this is Shy Valentine Vanessa, shes so cute, Ive printed her out onto white card and coloured her with copic pens then used my circle Nestabilitie die cut her out, afterwards I cut out a scalloped circle in a dark pink pearlescent card to mount her onto. The sentiment is one of MSE stamps that Ive stamped and mounted in the same way as the mounted image.
My base card is a 7"x 7" white card and my first layer is dark pink card, with one of four papers that Ive printed from my Nitwit Downloads, this set is called Butterfly Kisses, it has a sentiment all over design, and for the further three layers Ive used my deep edged Heart punch by Martha Stewart along one of the edges then layered them up down the card. Over the bottom one Ive stuck a ribbon with Love printed on it.
I then mounted my image in the centre and my sentiment underneath to the right hand side. I also punched out two hearts that I stuck to the bottom left. I then created two flowers from some of the left over paper and hung a heart charm from the bottom one, before sticking them to my card, Ive arranged some punched out leaves in a circle and popped the flowers on top.
My camera seems to have made her rather misty looking I hope it doesnt cause you any problems with being able to see her.
