Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone - hope you have recovered from the festivities!
This week we are sponsoring the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge.
The theme is Love and Hearts.
Here is our submission:

I decoupaged the main image - the beautiful Penny Black "Love is the Message" stamp

I matted the image onto a die cut layer using Spellbinders Nestabilities Heart Squares
I threaded some Vintage Ribbon around the edges:
The flourishes were die cut using Spellbinders Bird Flourishes:

They were cut from the Creative Expressions Foundations Paper range:

I layered my topper onto white card which was embossed using one of the new Couture Creations embossing folders - Vintage Plumes:

 I stamped a sentiment and die cut it using Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three:

I hope you like it!
