The Queen of Hearts

Hello there, wow we actually had a lovely sunny day yesterday, shame I was a at work but it still makes you feel better when the sun shines. I've made a very quick card for my DT card for Michelle Perkett Studio as I'm still battling on decorating the kitchen. I coloured the gorgeous Queen of Hearts (you can find her in Michelle's ETSY store) a little while ago and got her stuck in my MS punch!! I managed to get her out and surprisingly safe and sound so I've used her to make this little card

The image is coloured with promarkers, punched with MS doiley lace punch and matted on black card also punched with the same punch. I've used an A6 card blank for a change and added a little black gem in each of the corners and a black bow at the top.

A really quick and easy card but to be honest this image is such a cute little character I don't think she needs much else with all those lovely hearts around her!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bee Crafty: Hearts
Gingerloft Challenge: The colour red
Guylou's inimitability: I {{heart}} you
One Stop Craft Challenge: Love is in the air
Stamp-n-Doodle: Red/Pink and white plus 1

Thanks for visiting today, hope you're having a good one
There's a new challenge today over at Michelle Perkett Studio so pop over and check it out, Jan and her lovely team of mermaids have set the theme of 'Your Choice' so its a pretty free and easy challenge you just need to use one of Michelle's beautiful stamps. If you don't have any of Michelle's images pop over to her groups on CDAC, PCP and SNR where you can pick up a fab freebie or two!!
