Basic Grey Guest DT card

I'm really chuffed to be joining the wonderful DT of Basic Grey Challenges as a guest designer for the month of October! That means that I'll be making 3 cards for them!!
The first follows the super sketch by Martine and I used it to make a Wedding Anniversary card for my brother to give to his wife.
I've used gorgeous pink and lime Basic Grey (!) paper teamed up with pink DP from Papermania's Blueberry Hill.
The image is "Orchid" from my own range A Passion for Stamps (found in the sidebar) and is coloured with Promarkers.I know I always use Promarkers but I really love them and the different shades you can get by shading.
I got a new Cuttlebug embossing folder and as it has hearts on it, I just had to use it for this one.
I've also used my Dovecraft heart border punch along the bottom of the computer generated sentiment and added some flat backed pearls.
The two little X's at the top are actually made with a miniature alphabet punch set which I bought ages ago in Banana Bookshop.
Well,that's one down and two to go!!
I feel like starting the next card now!!
See you soon,Ruth
