Love and hearts challenge card

Happy new year to you all and here is my first PB DT card for 2012.
The Penny Black and More challenge  is "Love and hearts" and I thought this image was perfect for that challenge. I kept my colouring to a minimum using my Aquamarkers to make soft delicate shades. I matched up my card and papers and cut out the leaves on my bigshot. I used a mixture of flowers and brads to coordinate with my papers and a heart doily for interest. I was pleased with the finished result but now feel I added too many flowers. Not to worry, I am sure someone will appreciate it.
 I have entered my card into the challenges listed below. girly   use a sentiment   anything goes  anything goes anything goes anything goes  anything goes anything goes anything goes   hearts anything goes anything goes rainbow of colours case study Amy Sheffer card anything goes anything goes  happy anything goes freestyle anything but not a xmas card friendship use some green
