Penny Black Saturday Challenge 35

Love is in the air over on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog...with the theme of 'Romance' for this week's challenge. I've used 'Furry Embrace' as my main image, and combined it with paper by DCWV (from the 'Christmas' stack), vellum by Papermania ( rom the 'Exquisite' vellums stack), and a panel of card embossed with the 'Textile' Cuttlebug folder. The flourishes were stamped with Hero Arts 'Fantastic Flourishes' stamps in black ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. The paper roses (tied into the ribbon) are from John Lewis.

I'm think I'm going to give this card to my parents for their wedding's not 'til May, so this gives my Mum time to forget that she's seen it on here! lol
