Love is in the Air

Evening everyone.  Love is definetely in the air in blog land and I wanted to get in on the action, its a while since I've created a card purely with challenges in mind.  I've broken away again from my usual style though it is a style I enjoy.

I've used two new digi hearts by artist Chrissy Armstrong for the background.  The are new having only been released on the 1st of this month and are available from Whimsy Stamps HERE

I do apologise for the pinkness of the white.  My daughter dropped my pro camera yesterday and it won't focus at all now so I'm having to revert back to my old small one - just hope mine can be fixed!
I used a fabby digi sentiment, by Anne Vento of Raindropecho Design and available from Whimsy Stamps HERE.   I have to say it was a difficult call to make in which of Ann's sentiments to use, there really is one to match every mood within every occassion!

I used my trusty nesties and did a bit of matting and layering and kept the embellies to a minimum but with a bit of bling.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges......
