Romance may not be dead

But it sure ain't alive and kicking around these parts! Today was our 23rd Anniversary, there were no flowers or jewels, the card was finally written at teatime but I did get taken to the garden centre where there was a Docraft demo on and was left to browse undisturbed, then a fish supper for tea - oh well a girl can't have everything lol
Well over in Limette land this week we're seeing double. 

This card has taken me all night to produce, it was such a simple idea which just wouldn't execute itself. This is my ninth attempt and I've simply stamped black on white as I couldn't find the right medium to colour with.
The Happy Birthday is from Clarity stamps and the perfume bottle from Creative Expressions. I've popped a black gem in the two corners to finish off.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - seeing double
Little Claires - black and white
Paper Play  - 2 or more stamped images
