Ruby Love Birds

I was asked to make a card for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary, and here's what I came up with.
The adorable image was a Valentine's freebie from Nutcrafter's on their Facebook page back in February, I've been waiting for an excuse to play with it, and I have to say that it was such fun to colour, which I've done with Promarkers.
The shaped blank is from Craftwork Cards, and I stamped a border with See Dees stamps using Barn Door Distress Ink.  I've resurrected my See Dee collection lately and have been thoroughly enjoying using them again.
The papers are Papermania Tatty Teddy, to which I've added plain white cardstock and a touch of red mirri, along with some faux stitching for a bit of interest.  I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set to make the heart frame and Spellbinders dies to make the hearts.  The sentiment was computer generated.
Some bright red organza ribbon, a bow and some ruby gems finish off my loved up card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Anything Goes - #92 - Anything But Square
Oldie But a Goodie - Inspired by a Song - Ruby by the Kaiser Chiefs.  My old stash is the See Dees stamps, ribbon and gems
ABC - #28 - Wedding or Anniversary
Ooh, La, La - Seeing Red
The Corrosive Challenge - #174 - My Sentiments Exactly
Polka Doodles - #19 - Anniversary
Art Impressions - #110 - Bows
