Sweetheart Bear for Valentines Day

Hello and Happy Sunday to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.  We are awaiting the snow and its freezing here but I keep thinking that we have broken the back of Winter and Spring will soon be approaching.  I was out on the patio yesterday and noticed that my double Clematis was in bud.  So nice to see, but I hope the cold does not finish off the buds.  We also think the blackbirds are nesting as he and she are about a lot.

On to my card for today which features the beautiful Sweetheart Bear from The Doddle Garden on Etsy.  This is my lovely new stamp which I purchases yesterday and couldn't wait to colour.

List of Material used to make this card:

Wonderful image from The Doddle Garden coloured using Promarker Pens and Copic Pens.
Watercolour card for image.
Designer Papers are Bo Bunny and these are mounted on pink card stock to make an approx 6" x 6" card base.
Spellbinder dies to cut base and heart toppers.  These are my favourite die cuts at the moment.  Heart Die cut strip detail.
Lace and elements are from my stash. Flowers are Prima Designs and are new from sets I bought in the sales this week. The foiled heart elements are I think my favourite as they are suitable for so many occasions. 
I have made two hidden heart shaped greeting toppers, show below.  I have distressed the edges of all of the design papers and most elements plus the hidden greeting topper and think this looks very shabby chic.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

A side view of the card showing inside panel for recording of a greeting.

Thank you so much for reading this post and looking at my card.  
 A very warm welcome to all of my new followers.  
Thank you so much for joining me in my journey.
