From The Heart

Hello everyone here is a little cute card I made today please click on the images to see a bigger version as I really need to try and remember the zoom when taking my photos but come on im new to this photography lark lol.
Whimsy stamps recently had a blog hop and i was lucky enough to be one of the lucky winners.I didn't know which of their new releases I was going to recieve but when Wee Bunny hopped through the letter box I was so pleased how cute is he.Also I was geting a little bored of doing red cards so decided on lilac and lime but I think it works.My local WHSmiths had these 12x12 papers from Dovecraft on offer they are the back to basics ones I think you get like 36 sheets 3 of each design and they were only £2.99 so I grabbed a pack.
products used on my card are:

Stamps:Wee Bunny(Whimsy stamps),Everyday sentiments(Whiff of Joy)
Dies:Deckled rectangle Nestabilities
Papers:Dovecraft Back To Basics
Colouring mediums:Promarkers,Lavender brilliance inkpad
Embellishments:Lace,stickles(ice Lemon),pearls(WOC),heart doily,pearl heart,gems
Punches:Martha Stewart butterfly
Tools:Tim Holtz Paper Distresser

I have distressed the edges of the papers but I then added some stickleds so I am not too sure if its visible to you.
