LOTV - James Big Heart

Today's card is one of those where I sat back afterwards and smiled.  It's another LOTV card, and I am really pleased with how it turned out, although it probably helps that it's pink!  LOL

I'll be honest and I was more than a bit nervous about colouring the large heart, and had to resist a strong urge to paper piece it.  I tried to leave it quite pale, so used my DI reinkers to watercolour the image.  Without wishing to blow my own trumpet, I think he turned out quite well.

And I really LOVE these gorgeous LOTV Always and Forever papers.  (I may have possibly bought a spare pad of it to keep in reserve!)

To finish off, I've used one of my beloved pearl brads, a shimmery pink satin bow and some pretty pearls.

I love this image and have done it with both colouring and paper piecing... the colouring option is a bit scary! Yours is so beautifully coloured including the heart of course :-)
The whole card is uber pretty with that lovely DP and fabby bow.
