Summer Romance

... at least in my imagination! 

Several challenges this week revolve around love and summer, and well, those two do go together nicely. Ahhhh, to be a teenager again, with a summer fling... (And now, looking back, remembering how badly I wanted to be grown so I could go off and do whatever I wanted to... Weren't we silly?)

This cute couple is from Bee Crafty Downloads. All DPs are K & Company's Urban Rhapsody collection. Flower are Prima, rhinestones are from the stash, and the ribbon is some old seam tape my mom had lying around. The DPs are all machine-stitched, but it doesn't show. Used nesties to cut the shapes on the sides.
*Shoestring Alert* - The vintage Paris pic is from The Graphics Fairy. She posts tons of vintage clip art, etc. for FREE on her blog.  She's also on Facebook, I think.
