The Power of Love Stampsmith Style

It's time for another challenge over at The Stampsmith, and this time it's The Power of Love. It's ages since I've made an acetate card, and I thought this card suited one nicely.
I'm really struggling to take a photograph as we have no light - even in the middle of the day I need to use flash - not good with acetate!
The background papers are fab, they are from Craftwork Cards and are foiled. I got them in a goodie back at Christmas and I love 'em.
I've used a Tim Holtz die to cut the flower, and gave it a bit of a curl.
The ribbon also came in the goodie bag and I've tied it using the unmovable knot click on the link, honestly you will never tie ribbon round a card any other way :o)
This is an anniversary card for my Mum and Dad, 52 years of wedded er bliss Mmm don't know about a card, I think they both deserve a medal lol.
A great challenge, and thanks very much for looking x
