Love & Romance.

Another Valentines card using the same Die cuts as before but giving a totally different feel.
I have gone for Romance and old fashioned chic. Hope I have pulled it off.
The Hearts and butterflies are in fact cream and gold but do not show up as such. The card base is cream with a dark brown card stock matted onto it. The flower stamp is in brown and is also on cream card which I have matted onto thick card and then distressed the edges. Stitching has been hand done using brown thread to match. Lace is from my late MIL's unmentionables and the Love stamp is by Wow from the Suzy West Collection.

You are on a roll! More than one valentine, Mrs. A? Does The Doc know? The balance of this one is particularly pleasing; with your prettily stamped vertical panel placed in just the right place with the ribbon on the left and the tumble of hearts on the right. Lovely! Hugs, Lesley
