A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Something New

It's the first challenge of the year at A Gem of a Challenge, and we're kicking off January with the theme of, "Something New".  That can be new baby, new home, new job etc., or, like I've done with my card, you could use some lovely new stash.  I've also used one of Janet's new digis, the adorable Ozzie with Heart, who is just perfect for Valentine's cards.  He's been coloured with my usual Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
 The new element for this challenge comes in the shape of some yummy new stash that I got as Christmas prezzies from some of my crafty friends, the pretty Dovecraft Back to Basics IV papers and matching gems are new, as are the micro beads that I've used to create a border for the image.  Thank you girlies, I had great fun playing with my presents, and I have more lovely new stuff to play with too, I was a very lucky girl!
As the topper is quite large, I kept the rest of the card fairly simple, embellishing only with ribbon and a bow.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Totally Gorjuss - #217 - Ribbon
Allsorts - #240 - Free and Easy
My Time to Craft - #229 - Music or Movie Influenced - I was inspired by the Beatles song "All You Need is Love"
Suzy Bee - #10 - Anything Goes
A Creative Romance - Something New - I used new stash
Brown Sugar - #75 - Use Ribbon or Twine
