First Card for The Paper Shelter and Cute Card Thursday Challenge

Good Afternoon Ladies, well here we go this is my first official DT card for The Paper Shelter and Im also going to enter it in the Cute Card Thursday "Sketch by Lynn" challenge, and this ever so cute image is "Cupid Girl" I carnt tell you how cute these images are and I would strongly recommend you click on the name to go and have a look at them.
Ive printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I cut her out with my Nestabilitie Label Die No.1 and then draw around the edge to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one of the gorgeous "Love" sentiments from Whimsey Stamps you will be able to get these from Nikki of BunnyZoes shop. Ive then cut it out with my circle die and created a mount for it with a scalloped one.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card, Ive then used Donna's fabulous "Love Dreams" digi papers from Bearlymine Designs, oh by the way shes got some brand new digi sets coming out soon, and they are stunning so do keep your eyes open, I shall be previewing some of them in the next few days and you will be able to see for yourself, and if you click on Donna's name you will be able to see what I mean.
I then created the card with the papers from "Love  Dreams" as the sketch from Lynn shows, the first an all over sentiment paper and then on top a beige paper with hearts and punched heart corners, and the third a stripe and the same punch used on these corners to. I wrapped a red satin ribbon around the middle, and positioned my sentiment on top on the left, and my mounted image at the top on the right. To finish of Ive created two hearts, which I received for Susi Sugar in my prize last week, and covered them with some crushed glass glitter, and stuck them at the bottom on the right. The last thing is a large daisy that Ive stuck to the top on the left on top of some silicone glue and punched out leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
