House Mouse Sunflower Smooch

This card is for a challenge over on SCS Blogger Group 7. We had to make a Valentine's Day card but not use Pink, Red or White. I used Very Vanilla to stamp my image on with Versafine Vintage Sepia. Then using SU chalks, I coloured it in, then sealed it with fixative. The sketch I used for inspiration is Mojo Monday Week 21. I'm not sure whether I've technically followed the sketch or not by not adding half circles in the indicated spots, so inspired giving credit is best.
Cardstock - SU Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Ink - SU More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Versafine Vintage Sepia
Stamp - House Mouse Sunflower Smooch, SU Sanded
Accessories - Old Olive brads, Old Olive ribbon, SU round scallop,1 3/8" & 1" round punches,
gold heart from stash, SU chalks
I'm really pleased with the way this card came together.
Thanks for looking.
