A new challenge at Diva's by Design.

Good morning friends.
I hope you are all well and having a lovely week. I mentioned last week that I had a fear of downloading Photoscape because of all the problems I have had with my previous computer. Well after you lovely people commented that you have had no problems with it, I took the bull by the horns and downloaded it again. It is lovely to use it again. Photoscape, I have missed you. xxx

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Diva's by Design. We are being sponsored by Mei Flower and the theme is "With Love". Very appropriate seen as it is Valentines this week. 
I have used a LOTV image Close your eyes. 
Don't all pass out but I have made a card that is not pink!!!
A link to all the products used will be at the bottom of this post.

I have coloured this adorable couple with Distress Markers. Think I need to sell my copics!!!

 I love the Doo Hickey tag. I think it is my favourite crafty product at the moment.  The pearl border on top of the lace is from The Hobby House. The pearl string has been altered. I cut a layer of beads from the bottom of the beaded string for a more delicate look. The string goes twice as far also which is always a good thing for us crafters. 

The flowers are a combination of WOC and Live and Love Crafts.

I would like to welcome my new followers. Thank you so much for joining me.
