Polka Doodles Challenge 2 LOVE Theme

Morning Everyone, this week over at Polka Doodles   Nikky our head Doodler has challenged us all to make something with a love theme using the brand new Love & Cherish CD which had it's debut last Sunday on Create & Craft. If you didn't manage to catch the show and see all the fabulous papers on the CD, the show will be repeated and you can also check out the DT members blogs to see what we've all been doing with them.
Here's my DT card:

For my Valentine card, I couldn't resist using the gorgeous Diamond heart embellishments which come on a sheet in a variety of sizes and I've used a small heart in the centre of my large one. I cut the hearts out and layered the large one on strawberry coloured glittered card and then black. I glued a silver heart charm at the top.
I also made a decorative border with the smallest diamond heart by cropping it closely and copying it in a row on a blank document in the Word programme on my computer. I then printed out some of the black and white Fleur De Lys paper from the Elegance collection on both white and red card. As quite a few of the patterned papers are black or grey and white,  you can see the possibilites are huge!
I cut strips from the printed papers and layered them across the card with a panel at the top embossed with the Sissix Floral Flourishes and Vines embossing folder set. I stuck the heart near the top and added computer generated text and a key. The key came from a set in various colours on the CD and I cut out a black one and covered it with Ranger Glossy Accents for some added dimension.
