The winner of this challenge will win our brand new Dollie Goes East collection!
You can see the winners of our Week 5 challenge at the end of the post, but let's see what the Design Team have done with the theme this week!.....

LizzieFor my card I used my Graphics program and used a heart shaped outline. I then filled it with Dragonflies and Butterflies resizing and flipping them from the Dolly Daydream Goes East CD. The sentiment is also from the CD, I'm so loving this CD !! I then printed and cut out the heart so you cant see the outline. 

Ruth: I've kept it very clean and simple again this week - I've used the Sleepyhead digi but only used the sentiment which has been coloured with Promarkers and glossy accents. A few half pearls and the job is done!

Zoe - So love is in the air today, but I thought I'd go off the usual and use the non traditional colours of purple and yellow to design this card. I used the stunning Dollie Daydream goes East collection to print off papers, sentiment scroll, embellishments and gorgeous image. I coloured the image with markers including Graph It's and used them to coordinate the tickets and flowers. I absolutely love this collection!!
Scatty Jan For my project today I have made a little post it holder using the fantastic Dollie Daydream goes East collection - I used promarkers to colour and on the sea I have used clear micro glass beads - The paper is also from the collection along with the Sentiment  and dragonflies and butterflies xx
Claire C I've used the fab Cherry Blossom Lane Cd for my card, these bunnies are adorable! I've coloured the image with Graph'It markers (the warm greys and pink greys are perfect for fur) and used a couple of the gorgeous bps from the CD too.
Anjie - On my card this week the papers, embellishments, sentiment tickets and scroll are all from the new Dollie Daydream Goes East CD Collection. I cut out some paper in the shape of a heart, and made rolled roses to put around the heart. I've used distress ink around the edges of everything. I then added some faux stitching around the background paper using the Studio 12 Distressed Zig & Zag A5 stamp set

Katie - Love is in the air and on my card this week I have used a graphics program to set out the card and add dimension.  I used the Dollie Daydream Goes East CD I placed the digi image on the layout and coloured her in with my alcoholic markers.I glossy accented the letters that spell out the word 'love'. I used glitter glue on the fan and then coloured in the flowers on each corner with my markers. And then embellished with some Chinese wooden beads and ribbon. Have a romantic day and Keeeeeep Crafting xx Katie xx

Shell- At the moment I have a thing for cas cards and this image is just perfect for this style...I have used one of the new Dollie images and have coloured her with copics and promarkers. You can get Dollie here..I then just added a ribbon and a few brads to finish it off.
Susan   For the Love theme this week I have used an image from the Fredericka CD also available as a digi download and coloured her with Graph'It markers.The papers are from the Picknix collection.
Fantastic cards this week, so pretty!  Don't forget you MUST follow the Love challenge theme and get your entries in by 28th February.
