Love You

Here is a love card that I created using Bird Swing from Wee Stamps. 
I stared with a white card base.  I added a pastel yellow piece of card stock that I cut just a little smaller than the base. I cut a strip of yellow stripped patterned paper and added a piece of white card stock at the bottom that I had punched using an eyelet lace border punch. I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils. I cut it out in an oval, backed it in pastel yellow and then again in white. I cut around it using scallop scissors. I backed the image in pastel yellow card stock and then again in white card stock.  I added 2 yellow paper daisies to the bottom corner of the image and then added a white pearl to the center of each. I also added 3 white pearls to the upper corner. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
