Stupid Cupid

Good evening everyone!  Tonight is the first chance that I've had to show you my DT card for this week's challenge at 2 Sisters.  I figure a couple days late is better than never right?  Well, anyway hope you all think it was worth the wait........

Our challenge this week is RED and/or PINK and WHITE.  We are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps.  The image I used is called Stupid Cupid.
I started with a red card base. I cut a piece of pink just a little smaller than the base.  I added faux stitching around the edges. I cut a piece of mini heart patterned paper and added a piece of red cardstock that I punched using a lace heart border punch.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils.  I added faux stitching around the image and then backed it in red card stock. I added garnet red glitter glue to the sunglasses, arrows and sash.  I also added crystal stickles to the wings.  I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and then backed it in red card stock.  I added garnet red glitter glue to the heart on the sentiment.  I finished off the card by adding 3 red card stock hearts. (from when I punched out the heart border).  I added red glitter glue to each of the hearts.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
