Ching-Chou Kuik - Wishing Stars

Good afternoon my lovely crafting friends, I have decided to use this image for my entry into the monthly challenge which is themed love is all around around.  I thought about adding some love hearts to the imaged but decided not to as in my opinion you dont always need hearts to express love. I gave the image a romantic shabby chic feel which is also a love of mine <3  Hope you like her, I just have to now figure out how to make a box envelope for her as the flowers are too big for a conventional one.  Happy Valentines Day <3xoxo<3
