My DT card for Digi Darla's My Style Challenge

Another week has flown by and its now time for challenge 48 - My Style over at

You need to make a project that shows your personal style, so a nice easy one
Hop on over and enter your creations HERE

As you know I love to make cards a little out of the ordinary and particularly shaped cards 
and here is one I have made using my Spellbinders scalloped and plain heart nesties to create a heart shaped easel card. 

I have used a wonderful Digi Darla image called Valentine Bears which I coloured with Copics, its available here in the Digi Darla Design store. I added some faux stitching around the edges of the heart and the lovely red heart paper I have used is from a Pink Petticoat download.
 I then just added a lovely red and white gingham bow and some die cut hearts to finish it off.
