Ooh La La - A Spoon Full Of Sugar

Hello again,
This is my third DT card for Ooh La La Challenges and this fortnight the challenge is "Love".  Now this doesn't have to be a Valentine card, but if that's what you want to do then feel free.  However you want to interpret the challenge is entirely up to you.
So I based this card on the current sketch at A Spoon Full of Sugar, and this is their sketch:
So the images I have worked with on this challenge can be found on the Femme Fatale CD called Valentine Fair which is available at the Ooh La La store, along with many other fabulous items.  This is the card I made for this challenge:
Firstly I printed out a sheet to use as the backing sheet (now this wasn't the first one I printed, but that one just didn't feel right so this was the second one I printed - yes, much better!)  Before I stuck this to the backing card I wrapped a piece of gilt edged taffeta ribbon around the card and secured it at the back.  Then I stuck down the backing sheet with double sided tape.  I printed out a heart template and then cut out two different sized hearts from the other backing sheet I printed called Weave (from the same set on the same CD). I glued the larger one down towards the top of the page as the sketch dictated and stuck this down with PVA glue.  I then printed off two topper images and cut out the "fairy" image from one of them so that I could decoupage this on to the main image. 
I backed the image onto black card so that it would stand out a little bit.
I then added the smaller heart so that it overlapped the main image and then added a stamped sentiment at the bottom and topped this off with a hand made bow in red with silver hearts on it.  I added three punched hearts at the bottom......well just because I liked them really.
I also printed off the A4 insert to add to the inside of the card.  I also added a punched heart to the insert to tie it in with the front.
