Thinking of You

This little cutie is a Pink Gem freebie and I wanted to enter it in this month's Pink Gem challenge so I've sort of followed their sketch.  I have created the layout by masking and using ink, so it looks like the correct layers even though it's not layered (except the popped up image) - does that make any sense?

This is the first time I've used my new liquid pearls and it was looking quite disastrously until I remembered watching someone flick the card to make them settle into a blob rather than a mountain (or something else my dirty mind was thinking of!).  They look ok now but hopefully my next attempt will be better.

This card makes me think of summer - sitting in amongst all those flowers with butterflies flying around, hence why I've entered this into quite a few summer themed challenges.

Anyway, I want to enter this card into quite a few challenges, so here goes...

Allsorts - summer
Bee crafty - 3d (the main image is popped up)
By the cute and girly - Summer days
Pink Gem - Sketch
Little Paper Shop - Distressing (I added ink around the edges of the heart)
