A sweet romance

Hello, hope you all good.

Where's spring gone? It's a bit chilly here today, 
Yesterday Darren was the perfect chauffeur and took me to the new LOTV shop in Leeds,
It's gorgeous and it was lovely to meet the team,
They were all so friendly.
Treated myself to a few stamps and will get to have a bit of a play sometime soon.

Today I have a sample card for SirStampalot
I adore this sweet image and it's called

Sweet Romance


 I wanted to give it an oldie feel so have used sepia tones

I have also used:
Tim Holtz ~ DIs and Weathered Clock
DooHickey ~ Swirl, Rose Leaves and Peony Petals
Marianne ~ English Rose
Prima ~ Printery
Nestabilities ~ Scallop Rectangle

I'd like to enter:
Papertake Weekly ~ Anything goes

Thanks for looking
BIG
HUGZ

Hi Fleur,
This card is stunning. The choice of sepia was perfect for these delightful images. The little boy reminds me of a photo of my grandad from when he was a little boy in the 1900's.
All the best Linda
