Happy World Card Making Day!

I hope you've all found the time to have a little craft today...the perfect way to spend World Card Making Day! To celebrate, the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog, is having a 24 hour challenge...to make a 'Girly Card' for Paige (the little girl who lost her arm in an accident a couple of months ago)...there's a fab candy on offer for the winner too! I've already sent Paige a card, so this card is going to a PostPals child, as I haven't sent one in a while. I followed this week's Friday Sketcher's sketch...keeping the hearts theme going through the papers, image and sentiment. The image is 'Bumble Bee' by Sugar Nellie...and if this isn't too cheeky...I know she's not technically a 'bug', but I'd also like to enter this card for the Cupcake Craft Challenge...where the theme is 'Cute as a Bug'. The papers are by BasicGrey, from the 'Blush', 'Lemonade', 'Bittersweet' and 'Figgy Pudding' collections. I embossed the pink paper with my Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder, and the two hearts (cut using the 'Concentric Hearts' die) with my 'D'Vine Swirls' folder. The sentiment stamp and little heart (used to stamp and emboss in clear powder in the top right-hand corner) are from a set that came free with a Docrafts magazine. The raffia lace is from Hobbycraft.
