A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 36 - Love is in the Air

It's been ages since I managed to get a card done for a challenge, but I'm in the process of completing quite a few at the moment (I don't know what's come over me!)
This is the first one and is for this week's Spoonful of Sugar challenge which is:
Love is in the Air
We would like you to create a card or a gift for someone special.

I thought that this little girl looked like she may be about to post her valentine card, so I hope that she may fit the bill for the challenge.
I decided to use brown chalk to tone down and distress the white scalloped mat and I think this was definitely a mistake!

Card Details:
* Image - Penpal from Sugar Nellie
* Coloured with Letraset Pro-markers
* Papers - Amy Butler from K & Co.
* Sentiment - 'Amore' sticker from K & Co
* Punch - Lace Doiley from Martha Stewart
* Scalloped oval mat - Nestabilities
* Ribbon from Poppicrafts
* Pearls from Joanna Sheen

There's only one trouble with look at other blogs ........... my wish list for different stamps is growing bigger and bigger by the day and I just need to win the lottery to get them!!! Speak soon.

Those colours are just so lovely. As is the rest of the card. It seems so many people have these Martha Stewart punches. I want one (well some but it will probably have to be one.) Where can I get one???
