Pollycraft Challenge *8* meets Papertake Weekly

This is the first time I've entered one of the Pollycraft Challenges...I only have one of their stamps (Jade & William - 'First Love' - I won it on one of the Penny Black Saturday Challenges a few weeks ago), but it's perfect for the theme of their challenge which is 'Love', I'm also entering this card for this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge, which has the theme 'Hearts & Flowers'. I've kept the layout quite simple, as the stamp is quite large (too big for my largest acrylic block in fact, so I had to use one of my Cuttlebug plates to stamp it! lol), and the paper I've used (BasicGrey - 'Gypsy Hippie') is really busy! The embossed strip was done using the 'Perfect Paisley' Cuttlebug folder, the flowers are from Poppicrafts, and the cute little heart-shaped brad (which says 'Love U' on it) is by Around the Block (' Simply Said' Brads in a Bag).
