Valentines or Love Challenge for Totally Papercrafts

It's time for another Challenge at Totally Papercrafts.
 The Challenge this week is 'Valentines or Love' set by our lovely Cathy and I have made a card featuring the fabulous image Romeo and Juliet from Sassy Studios. 
 This was last Friday's Freebie for the Paper Crafting Planet Group and has been a joy to colour and design with.
 We would love to see your cards in the Challenge.  
Many congratulations to the winners of last weeks Challenge and thank you to all who participated your cards are a delight to view.



This weeks fabulous sponsors is



The prize is:- The winner's choice of any three images (including sets)





List of Materials used to make this card:

Cardstock is a 6" x 6" base cut and folded to Easel shape with matching card for mats and die cuts.
Design papers can be found here.  Free Vintage Digital Stamps is a wonderful website where a wide range of papers, images and ephemera can be found.
Spellbinder heart die for main image, Spellbinder roses made from similar papers.  Fan, leaves, flower border, swirl and labels die cuts have also been used.
Pearl embossed flower ribbon and bling swirl are from my blog, as is the tiny swirl frame  provided kindly by Jen when I won her Candy prize.
Lovely butterfly image is from Etsy.
I have stamped 2 hidden tags and sentiments using Vintage Distress Inks from Mr Holtz.  I stamped a double layer of design detail behind the image ( I have also done this on the main image).  I saw this on a post on my travels through blogland last week but can't remember who is was.  If I remember I will give credit.




I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:
