Crafty pad guest DT valentines card

Hiya everyone!

This is a card I made for my first stint as guest DT member for the crafty pad. Debbie has some fab digi and rubber designs on her crafty pad designs blog.
Here I have used the teds in love digi and the for someone special digi ticket. I have coloured my image with my promarkers and have distressed my papers with my Tim Holtz distress tool and have inked the edges with antique linen distess ink. The papers are from Summer Driggs newest freebie downloadable "dance with me" kit - her link can be found on my sidebar. I used my MS doily lace border and added a few burgundy pearls and cinnamon stickles around the image. The flowers are from the wonderful wild orchid crafts and the leaves are a bit that falls out of a fiskars border punch that I have!
