My last Valentine's card (yes, I know I'm late)

Hi all,
I know I don't usually post on a Friday, but I realised that I hadn't posted hubby's valentine's card here and if I had left it any later, everyone would be so over it. We were meant to be meeting up with friends, but they have the horrible sickness bug going around, and called it off. Hubby is off ill too, so we went out anyway to avoid his germs! The girls and I are visiting my inlaws tomorrow, to let hubby rest at home without any disturbances.
Anyway, onto the card. I have used an image by Delicious Doodles, called lovers. I quite like silhouette images - it saves time on the colouring anyway! The papers are by DCWV, dovecraft and papermania. I have distressed the edges with scissors and frayed the edges of the ribbon. Daisy saw me doing this and was really confused that I was ruining the papers! The swirl stamp is from a magazine freebie.
I would like to enter this into:
Southern Girls Challenge - So distressed
Bling it on - Love is all around
