Queen of Hearts - For Fun DT Card

This week at For Fun Challenges we are celebrating our first birthday! To help us with the festivities, we have another sponsor, Michelle Perkett. She gave us images to use for our Birthday celebration. So this week's challenge is "Happy Birthday".
Michelle Perkett is an artist who believes the world can always us more kindness, innocence, inspiration and color. She lives in beautiful Southern California, and has an incredibly unique, and positively happy style in her art. She has a magical store filled with angels, fairies, mermaids, and wonderful images, bound to delight you!

Michelle’s first love is her art. She has run her art business for over 6 years and is spreading worlwide with Etsy and devoted crafters. She tries to live the way she creates her art; with love, happiness, peace, harmony, joy, friendship, kindness and inspiration and hopes that she inspires other people to do the same.

Now onto my card:
The Princess came over on Sunday, wanting to learn how to make cards. We had a good time playing with my stash. It took 3 and half hours but she made a Valentine for her Sweetie. After much studying, she realized she has a very different style than mine, wanting to pull out any paper that is very loud, and the more embellishment the better!

Wow this card is busy! I really wanted to use this image and the Princess decreed this was the perfect paper. With all the hearts, they compliment each other well, but is far more busy than I would normally choose. She loved it though and wants this one for her birthday. The sentiment is from Inkadoo's Birthday cupcake set and the sentiment panel is sponged with TH ink.

Challenges this card meets:
Michelle Perkett Studio - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Hearts
Cupcake Challenge - I Heart You
