I Love Promarkers, Cute Card Thursday, Dareu2digistamp & Alphabet Challenges

I haven't been feeling too good the last few days as I've got a Sinus Infection, and this has thrown my balance out too so I hope I have included everything on this that I need to. I'll remember to add the photo of the card at least, as last week I entered a challenge and then had to be prompted by a friend that I had forgotten to put it on!(does help if you want to be in with a chance to win lol)

I  entered this card into several challenges today.
The challenges I've entered this card into are:-
1)  I Love Promarkers Challenge #1  - follow sketch given and use Pink & Brown.
2) Cute Card Thursday Challenge #99 - In the Name of Love.
3) dareu2digistampchallenge #31 - Use Your Punches and use a digital image
4) Alphabet Challenge - P is for Pink

I have altered the image given slightly, by making background of the card "unequal" pieces of card instead of the same, and I have rotated it, as I felt it looked more interesting that way. I hope you agree.
The card I have used was bought from The Paper Mill and the image is a digital image I've downloaded.
I embellished it with some pink and brown gems/pearls (though they look red in the photo they are definitely pink).
As the digital image was of Cupid, I felt this tied in with the "In the Name of Love" theme, and also I added a "With Love" sentiment.
I have used a corner punch to give the corner of the card I cut,  a different pattern, rather than it being plain, and also this ties in with the "use your punches" theme.
As one of the challenges asked for pink and brown, and another challenge asked for pink, I have tied these in together as well.
I hope you enjoy my card.
