Another Valentine!

I just came across a freebie image over at Digi Darlas Challenges

and it reminded me again of those Victorian Valentines - all hearts and lace and flourishes!

You may have seen my DT card for Get Inky! detailed here

(By the way you still have two days to enter the Get Inky! Valentine Challenge)

Anyway I was further inspired to make this:

 I printed the Digi Darla image several times and then cut out different pieces to layer up.
The lace I tacked and gathered and stuck down with 'red tape' (very strong!!)
 on the first layer.
I then added further layers and pearls.

Hope you like it!

I am submitting this to 

Happy Crafting!
