Lil Patch of Crafty Friends challenge 2

A very warm hello to all my friends, followers and visitors today, I hope this post finds you all well.
So, this is my very first post for the new Design Team at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends and I have been so so excited for these challenges to begin-did you enter our first challenge??
The challenges are always 'anything goes'  and are posted each fortnight. Today is the start of challenge 2 and we have 3 fab sponsors lined up, with the following prizes so a big 'thank you' to all of them for their support:

 offering 7 digi images of winners choice

 offering 3 images of winners choice

offering 2 digi images of winners choice

I was given this fab image from Star in my Pocket called Cute Heart Valentine to play with, which I thought was just gorgeous and perfect to make for that someone special on Valentines Day or maybe send to a special Mum on Mother's Day.
I coloured her in with my Promarkers, cut the image with my Xcut scalloped circle die and made a faux nestie for behind the image. I used papers from a pack I bought at Hobbycraft called Forever Friends Love. I punched a little strip with my doily punch for the right hand side and added two punched hearts and some paper flowers. A few little pearls and a touch of glitter finished it off:

Why not head on over the the blog here and take a look at the gorgeous cards that the other lovely ladies on the team have been busy making-there are some real beauties! While you're there why not enter a project into the challenge too?

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter # 186 -punches/dies
Moving along with the Times - dies/punches
Docerela Creations challenge # 76 -pink/red
Jo's Scrapbook Shack # 71 -anything goes
Sister Act # 89-anything goes
CCC digi creations # 17-digi/flowers
