Romantic Love

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called Romantic Love.  With Valentine's Day coming up you can make a card for your loved one but you could also make an Anniversary or Wedding card as any of these would fit the theme.  To win any of the prizes, your project must be either vintage or shabby chic.

I am going to see if my Son-in-Law would like to give this card to my Daughter because it is just a bit too frilly for me to give to my husband.

I started with some paper that I found online, added a strip of ruffled crepe paper to which I added a piece of satin ribbon and some lace.  An embossed heart, doily, vintage cupid image, some pearls, a pretty bow and a vintage looking button complete the card.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
