LOVE-ly layout

Good morning!
 I was busy in the studio yesterday!
I have this fabulous layout to share. 
There is a wonderful new challenge at Paper Secrets, it's a sketch challenge with a twist.
The twist is you must use LOVE... Or a product/ technique using the first letter of each of those letters?
L- lace, O- organza ribbon V- vintage photo and Victorian velvet distress inks E- embellishments and embossing!

Speaking of embellishments, I made my own for this layout. 
Here is my handmade flower embellishment.
That by the way is the challenge at shopping our stash! Make your own embellishments!
I have a small secret! This flower was made for my wedding, and has been repurposed on this LO!
I just adore that sparly button in the middle! 

Next I also made these little banners, and added the brads to finish them off! 
Brads are the challenge at All Sorts challenge blog!
Plus maybe you can see that there are brads around the picture as well!
By the way, this was my wedding day hair and flower! Which of course I made the flower!
I hope there is enough vintage romance all over this page,
I tend to think the black and white photos lend themselves to that awesome vintage ness!
I'll also be linking up with Bearly Mine's Vintage Romance challenge, 
Amazing mold putty: for the love of 

Finally I want to share the inspiration board that started it all
The challenge is from Scrap Around the World and here's the photo
