Birthday full of love

It's last Monday of this month. This means last challenge of the Paper Makeup Stamps in January. The theme of this week is Hearts Galore. Perfect chance to start your Valentine's Day cards or card to someone you love. So we want to see lots of hearts on your project and digi image of course :)
I was inspired by Valentine's Day to make a card to a lovely lady for her 82nd birthday. Although her health isn't very good she is full of joy, and she spreads it to others too. It's impossible not to smile around her.

I made my own embossing folder (plate actually) for this card. 6mm strips of cardboard was clued to a piece of sturdy paper and I run it through Cuttlebug with silicon mat (white paper between them of course). Easy and effective result.
I used my favorite PMS stamp as a main image - Isabella. I won her by participating on PMS Digi Makeover challenge. And soon after that I was called in the team :) So please join in with us and share your project with digi image. You can win fabulous digid from PMS store.
Isabella is colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I also added stickles to her dress and wings.

Inside of the card has same embossed background and two hand-cut hearts. I also put some pieces of Honeyblossom Sprig in there to add some color.

Materials used:
Stamp: Paper Makeup Stamps - Isabella

Papers: red and white papers from my stash
Inks: Memento - Lady Bug
Coloring: Promarkers, Flexparkers
Embossing: Crafts Too - Dots 5x5"; Craft Concepts - In Bloom; self made striped background embossing sheet
Dies: Memorybox - Honeyblossom Sprig (colored with promarkers and Flexmarkers)
Punches: Heyda border punch
Sentiment: Computer generated
Embellishments: Ranger Stickles - Crystal; Viva Pearl Pen - Ice White; Pearl string from my stash

I'd like to participate on following challenges:
StampARTic - Valentine
