No peeking Mum!!

This card is for Mum, from Dad - he has submitted to the "handmade is the only way" regime in our household, and always forgets to ask me to make Mum's cards until the last minute, so I pre-empted him on this one!
Obviously it's for Valentine's Day, and I couldn't resist the gorgeous House Mouse "Stocking Full" image - what says love more than sharing socks? I've also used "Mudpie Munch" (not quite a rose in his mouth but near enough)! Both images are coloured with Promarkers.
I've used some of the g.c.d Cloisonne paper with hearts on for the backing, and used the punched out pink card with a vellum backing for a different look. I've also punched out some vellum flowers with my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals dies, and fixed them with pearl brads.
The sentiment is from Forever Friends wedding die-cut sentiments.

Challenges:
Paper Sundaes #55 - Two or more images
Bunny Zoe's Challenge #8 - Love is in the air
Crafter's Companion Monthly #9 - Romance
House Mouse Challenge #88 - Hearts
