'Watering with love' - the cuttlebug spot challenge

Hi everyone a card today for The Cuttlebug Spot and 'Valentine colour challenge', a valentine card without red or pink. I've used 'Watering with love' Sketching Stamper digi-stamp and coloured with markers, cut out and glazed with glossy accents. The background panel is green coredinations card embossed with the CB hearts folder and sanded. The sentiment stamp is a freebie with this months craft stamper magazine but mine seems to be bent on the bottom edge and I've had to fill in with black liner, this is also coloured with markers. I've doodled a border with the colours used in the image and added the little heart buttons to finish. TFL.

Materials:
Image: Sketching Stamper Digi-stamp 'Watering with love', Craft Stamper Free sentiment stamp
Colouring: Promarkers: Aegean, bright orange, gold, amethyst, warm grey 2, warm grey 3, ice grey 4, black
Embellishment: CB hearts embossing folder, sandpaper, glossy accents, heart buttons, doodling with markers
