Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 127

It's my turn to host the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time, and the theme is: A Touch of Charm. So, any subject, colour, or project style you want, so long as it's got a charm clearly visible on it.

For this challenge, I made a card for a friend's parents.

The image is one I've had for a long time but never used before. I'm pretty sure it was a freebie, and it's from The Creative Mind of Sylive. She used to sell through the Stitchy Bear shop but doesn't any more, and I'm not even sure if her images are available anywhere at the moment. It's called Heart Blossom. I printed the image, having changed the outline colour from black to a burgundy shade and adding the sentiment, then die cut and coloured with Promarkers. I edged the topper with Distress Ink. The paper is one of the fabulous papers from the Joanna Sheen Ivory Cats CDrom that I bought recently. The flowers are made using craft punches, and I shaded the centres and petal edges with Pan Pastel before finishing them with some sticky gems. The heart charm is one I got at the recent BSSBS at Alexandra Palace. I created an insert to match using the same digi paper.

I hope you can join us this time, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challengs:
