In The Garden Of Love

Hi Everyone,
I would like to show you all a card I have made, and in the last few days I have been learning a couple of new techniques , and I have included both in this creation.
Firstly I have blended two digital images , the images I have used are CC Designs Birgitta Blowing Hearts isn't she adorable ! and the lovely background is from Make it Crafty and is called Tulip Garden . I followed a tutorial by the owner of Make it Crafty Zoe and you can find it Here
Next is the grass , I have had a few goes at creating grass , but mine was pretty basic, then I saw a card done by Pops , and OMG it was beautiful.This is the card I am referring to Here
Pops has a tutorial on how she creates her grass Here
It still amazes me how wonderfully helpful everyone is in our craft world. I didn't see Pops tutorials tab at first and I emailed her to get some advise , well she pointed me in the right direction and was so very nice , it didn't seem to bother her at all, so I would like to say a huge thank you, as I am really pleased with my results, I didn't have all the right colours that Pops used so I looked them up on the copic colour chart and chose the closest colours that I had.

Card Recipe
Digital Stamps - CC Designs and Make it Crafty
DP - Kaisercraft Sweets ? ( I think )
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon & Lace - from my stash
Chipboard Heart - Kaisercraft ( I think )
Dies - Spellbinder scalloped circles / heart circles 
Copic's and Prisma pencils to colour and I didn't write down the colours I used and I am so mad at myself.
The sentiment is computer generated.

I would like to enter the following Challenge
