I started having a play around on Friday, but have been feeling abit under the weather for the past couple of days, so I  finally finished it today,I've used lots of elements as well as lots of gold perfect my bling. I used a victorian style valentine card as inspiration, so I distressed and spritzed a doiley and then made a collage for the centre panel using a script stamp for the background from The Artistic Stamper, I cut out part of an image featuring the Eiffel Tower from a stamp from Crafty Individuals, I used a bronze embossing powder from Wow on parts of it. The victorian vignette image I got last year from Holland.I added a layer of angel type hair paper......actually it some packaging around some flowers, so abit of recycling there to the base of the collage and then added red rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.The red sparkly hearts I made using red cosmic shimmer embossing powder, the heart stamp is from Debbie Moore. The lace was spritzed in gold as well and then I added the word love whick are letters from Dovecraft cystal gem letters....
