Fanciful Notions

I nearly got to the end of the images (or so I thought) when going through a paper pad I found another one! This image from Mo was inside a forgotten pad which only had half a dozen sheets of paper in it which I didn't really like - hence it got chucked into a drawer!
Don't know why I hadn't coloured this one as it's such a fab image - This couple could have been together forever and he wants to show her he loves her just as much now as he did when they first met or maybe they've just found each other and the gentleman is trying to make an impression with the surprise bunch of flowers- such fanicful notions I have today! But both notions make me feel warm inside so I won't apologise for being a romantic dreamer!
Anyway, back to the card. As always, it's coloured with promarkers and then cut out with a deckled edge nestie. The papers are the same that I used on the previous (what my OH calls) 'old persons card'  - (how cheeky is that???? LOL) - which I posted earlier this week and cut out with a scalloped nestie. The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo and I coloured the flowers with promarkers for a colour match.
