With Love!

Where did today go.....I can't believe it's 16.37pm  already!!
Today a new challenge starts at AGOAC and I am a bit late adding my card.
I got this new digi design in my head yesterday afternoon and it took longer than I expected to work things out....the result was I spent all morning on it too!
Never mind it made my DT card come together quickly once the design was done.
Jackie has set the theme again for this challenge and she has chosen a colour, 'Aquamarine'

Here is my card

You can find my new digi design 'British Love Heart'  here
I have used my fab new 'Marianne Creatables Butterfly Die' which you can find here
Ribbon and gems are from my stash

New Digi

The 'British Love Heart' comes in black line JPEG & PNG 
Pastel coloured JPEG & PNG with and without the surrounding sentiments
Traditional coloured JPEG & PNG 
2 Traditional  coloured  dp JPEG files
....and a sentiment
(10 files in total)

If you want matching papers for the pastel heart.......all of our 'Colour Collection' digital papers have matching colours and you can find these here 
You can see I have used 'Distressed Stripes' for the background papers and I printed off some 'Mini Hearts' and 'Strawberries' to make the butterfly as these are the same patterns used in the heart design.
You will see that 'Distressed Gingham' is in the background on the pastel heart.
We don't have any red and blue paper so I made some to go with the tradtitional coloured heart...these are included in the digi set.

I made my card by opening the background 'Distressed Stripes' in a graphics programme and then opening the PNG version of the heart in the programme so it was above the paper and printed them out.
PNG's have transparent backgrounds, you only see the image and  you can layer them up.
You need a graphic of photo editing programme (any with layers) to do this but it is really quite easy and a lot of fun.
There are a few on the internet which you can download for free....there is one called GIMP
I am sure people leaving comments will also recommend some others which are out there :)
Well it's nearly Tea Time and my tummy is a rumbling so I will catch you all later!

Something A Bit Different

Something a bit different from me today
I have been playing with my new Spellbinders M-Bossabilities 'Hearts' 
These embossing folders are fab as they are reversable......bend them the other way and you have another pattern to play with!
I have also used my new Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Romantic Retangles' these are a brilliant size! I have used the second size down on a 6"x 6" square card. The largest die was too big to fit on the front of this card.....great to cut a fancy shaped card with though
Adesive Pearls from here
Everything else from my stash
