Happy Valentine's To "EWE"

This week at Catch The Bug Challenges there is a big 5th birthday celebration.  Each day there is a new challenge. I created this card for day 2 (Sunday) using the provided sketch below.


I started with a hot pink card base and added a piece of Recollections pink pindots patterned paper backed in white card stock to it. The image I used is Happy Valentines To Ewe from Bugaboo Stamps.  I colored the image and the sentiment using Spectrum Noir pens.  I cut the image out in an oval, backed it in hot pink and then again in white.  I cut around the white using scalloped scissors.  I also backed the image in hot pink and white.  I added 3 snowflake pearls to the upper corner of the image to represent the stars in the sketch and 2 more to the sentiment. I added diamond stickles to the wings.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
