Christmas challenge card at DS4J

Here is a very quick card I made for the Christmas challenge at DS4J - http://digistamps4joy-sa.blogspot.com/2014/02/monthly-christmas-challenge-february.html
I didn't do justice to the card due to some unforeseen circumstances.
Colored using zig stella markers. They look good face to face and glitter but are kind of awful to take photo of.

I have used Washi tape, stickers and embossing folder to decorate.

Today I am a designer on She's a Sassylady. Thanks Sheila for having me on as your designer.
Sassy Studio Designs has a challenge every month on facebook  - https://www.facebook.com/groups/258002824294410/ and you get to play with one of their given images following a theme. This month the image was "Pin up Kitty" and the theme so perfect for Valentine - "Hearts and Sentiments".
So I made a card

 Though I should say frankly this is an image I would not normally go for I did have fun coloring her though and coming up with a fun sassy sentiment to fit. I chalk up this card to experimentation.

The heart die is from spellbinder heartfelt creations and the heart border is from memory box called delightful heart border - 98767

Thank you all for letting me share my project with you all. Hope this inspires you to color up a image even if you have not colored before and also to try your hand at, to explore what you generally would not attempt normally.
Happy Valentine!

Challenge # 85 - Hearts

 The challenge this fortnight  at DS4J is Hearts and hosted by DT member  Karin .
THEME : 'Add a heart, or make a heart-shaped card"

I have used images Bedazzled Bride and Heart of roses

The flowers are handmade and the leaves cut using spellbinder die.
The heart border is a memory box die and the lacy heart doily is die from tattered laces. I love their dies!
I also used an embossing folder on the pink cardstock.
Added lots of pearls on the dress and rhinestones on the hearts.

Here are a few challenges I am entering this card into
