Girly with Hearts

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday!
A new month also means new sponsors, and this time it's our own talented Anne with Anne's Digital Art as well as Paper Temptress.
This week's optional twist is to make something for Valentine or something with hearts.
I used one of Anne's sweet girly images. I colored it with Promarkers and cut it with a Spellbinders die. The inner border of the die cut is pierced, and I decided to hand stitch with a silver thread, and I used my sewing machine for the edges of the card base.
For the background I used the sunray technique. I think it's a fun and decorative technique and it allows you to use some of those scraps too!  I die cut a heart and added a birthday greeting using pink EP and 3 rhinestones.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes / Hearts
2) Ooh La La Creations - Use a Heart
3) Crafty Boots - Bingo (Embossing+Heart+Die cut)
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
