Ain't Love Grand?

Hi peeps
Well, I'm home again, after all those lovely weeks in Spain, and would you believe I was lucky enough to have those few days of sunshine when we got back too!  Now it's back in at the deep end, and I've somehow got to find a way of getting through the dark winter months, so it's back to my card making and paper crafts.

Today's card is one that a friend asked me to make for her parent's 65th wedding anniversary - Imagine ... 65 years together, how incredible is that?  Anyway, the image is a digi from the lovely Mo Manning.  I've wanted to use this one for ages and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  The papers are some old ones, donated to me by my lovely friend Tash, so I'm afraid I don't know who they're by, but I do love the pink, cream and brown together.  I cut a heart shape out of corrugated cardboard, then covered it in white crackle paint, and edged it with Walnut Stain distress ink, and added a touch of pink distress ink over the white just to soften it a bit.  Each of the layers was stitched in place, and then I added some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, printed the sentiment and cut it out with a nestie, then added a couple of bits of ribbon, a pin, and a heart charm from my stash, and that's about it.  I do hope you like it.
