For the one I love

I want to say a GREAT BIG WELCOME TO MY NEW FOLLOWERS. It's great to see you!

I chose the absolutely knock-out "Ragged Romeo" image by the uber talented Mo Manning (found here) for hubby's Valentine's card and coloured my image with Copics and Promarkers.I love the vintagey feel of these cuties and whereas I don't normally make vintage style cards - this is an attempt at one!       Papers (which you can hardly see anymore) are by Brenda Walton for K&Co. 

My image is cut with Nestie dies.   I added a Hero Arts lacey heart stamp and used new Marianne dies for the second heart. There are two dies, one cuts out the heart and one cuts out (badly I have to say - and I did try it twice) the fretwork pattern on top.  I overstamped it with a vintage graphics stamp - the origins of which I'm unsure.  It's not very visible but it did just tone down some of the crispness of the pink against the burgunday DCWV card.  I threaded an organza ribbon through some holes I had made in the backing papers (aka the lovely Jules) and then promptly covered up the effect (duh!) with my LOTV sentiment.  A Making Memories "Adore" rivet thingy is another addition.  Three little buttons and a bow with seeded pearls were added just in case my card didn't have sufficient embellishment!  I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Mo's Digital Pencil - 120 Anything goes
