Love Grows Lili of the Valley stamp

Well what an epic this on has been. I have had terrible problems with my photo editor so much so that yesterday I sulked off to Sussex for some retail therapy at the Glitter pot and spent far too much money!!!!!!!!!!
The kids have gone to bed so I have taken the opportunity to download a free trial of Microsoft office 2010.It really worked a treat, photo manager is fantastic so I now have 60 days to decide if I want to buy. Happy days!!!!!!!!!

Right to the card ever since I saw the Lili of the Valley challenge to involve die cuts I have wanted to do this card. So without further adieu here it is...............................................

Well the challenge was to use die cut embellishments and I think I may have gone slightly overboard but hey ho.

The image is LOTV Love Grows. I bought this stamp in April and I am ashamed to say this is the first inking.

The tag has been cut using a Magnolia DooHickey die and stamped with the sentiment love grows. The tag slips out from behind the main image.

Hopefully you can see in this photo that the card is a dimensional step card.

  Finally the last photo!. Sorry I got so carried away and there are rather a lot of them.
This last picture shows the removable tag .
