"Anything goes" WOC challenge January

A wonderful close friend of mine just announced her Christmas engagement last month, so a perfect opportunity to create another romantic styled card which I figured would be perfect for the latest Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge for this month - Anything Goes.
I used one of Nitwit’s LuvBugsToo papers and one from a free paper blog for the background matting them onto gold mirri paper and then onto good quality white cardstock.   The lace and flowers of course come from the one and only Wild Orchid Crafts and the rose topper is another Thomas Kinkade image.  I added in some MS branch diecuts & gold “sprays” along with gold adhesive gems for the corners.
The stop is a diecut (I bought a set of them off Ebay but think they’re Spellbinders).   You can’t see it clearly, but I’ve also put their initials in gold peel-offs just in front of the “stop”.
 Unfortunately the photo I took of the inside didn’t come out & I didn’t realise until I’d already packaged the card up, but I just stuck with the old tried & tested format and put a little tag inside with their initials & some nice adhesive hearts on it.
Finished off with a nice little heart charm & red bow to complete the real romantic look.
 All presented in a handmade box with red tissue paper to make it a nice keepsake.
