LOTV DT Card and Challenges......

Well I'm finally back to crafting and my mojo is slowly returning. Today we have a new challenge for you over at the LOTV Challenge Blog and this weeks theme is "Romance". Aren't these new stamps adorable! I have used "The Little Things" and coloured with Copics. The sentiment is also LOTV, punched with an EK Success Punch.  The papers are MME and flowers from Wild Orchid. The corners have been punched with and EK Embossing Corner Punch. Do take a look at what the other DT's have made and I do hope you can join in this weeks challenge as Wild Orchid Crafts are this weeks sponsors.
Here is a list of challenges that my card fits into. Its ages since I've entered any challenges but thats my fault for taking too many holidays...
