Vellum Valentine

This is for the sketch on The house that stamps built What if? Wednesday D2811:

The card was also inspired by The perfect sentiment challenge 13: vellum Valentines - to use a sentiment for Valentines (love) and include some vellum. The background paper is an offcut of some crinkly paper that I've had for ages and the roses oval was torn round a template using an offcut of vellum. The LOVE sentiment is chipboard, the three hearts from stash. My xyron came in handy for sticking the background crinkly paper and also the vellum oval.

Colours are for Cards and things 103 (hope the silver is OK for the grey):

This is also for:
