Pile It On! Challenge - Hearts on Fire

We have another fun Pile It On! Challenge starting today...and the theme is:

'Hearts on Fire'
(Hearts, Fire or Red/Orange Colour Scheme)

We are sponsored for this challenge by Pink Gem:

Prize - Two Digi Images or Card Topper Kits of the winner's choice!

I chose to use hearts...and picked a cute Lili of the Valley bear image ('James - Big Heart') that I received as part of a prize ages ago. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then cut him out using one of my circle Nesties. I used a couple of pieces of My Mind's Eye papers from really old collections...the patterned one is from the 'Ooh La-La - for Her' collection, and the plain pink one is from the '29th Street Market' collection...I embossed it using my Sizzix 'Candy Hearts' folder. I sanded over the embossing, then distressed all of the edges and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiments are from the 'Smooches' set by Paper Smooches.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
