Valentines Box & Earrings

Di's Digi challenge today is "Valentines" & I thought I'd make a little box to put a valentines gift in.  I made the box with my Ultimate Pro (I wanted to print some nice patterned card to make the box with but my printer's playing up so I had to settle for plain cream).  The image I used from Di's Digi Downloads is called "Love Bears" & I paper pieced his jumper & coloured the rest with ProMarkers (for some reason my colouring was a bit pants on this image but hopefully you can see how adorable it is).  I added the obligatory Glamour Dust ;) & finished off with a flower, heart gems & pearls, heart die cut border & a ribbon.  I then made some earrings to go in the box (although I have been wearing them so they're not really a present apart from to myself lol).  There is the chance to win a $10 voucher from Joanna Sheen & lots of inspiration from the other DT girls.

The challenges:
Prairie Fridays - Anything But a Card
Delightful - Valentines Anything But a Card
Paper Sundaes - Paper Piecing
Incy Wincy - Anything But a Card
Cupcake - All You Need is Love
Crafty Creations - Anything But a Card
Craft Us Crazy - Full of Love
Crafty Purple Frog - Valentines Day/Show us Some Love
Cardmadfairy -Ribbons & Bows
The Poodles Parlour - Valentine/Love
Allsorts - One or More Hearts
Sweet Stampin' - Animals 
Little Claire's - Anything But a Card 
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Valentine's Day

Thanks for looking & have a wonderful weekend :)
