In Love...... and A Winner

Hi everyone,
Today I have a layout and a card to share with you.
Let me tell you a little story, my grandfather was born in Solo Indonesia he met my grandmother in Amsterdam they fell in love.
My mom was born in Amsterdam but when she was just one year old they moved to Indiana (USA) because my grandfather didn't liked the weather in The Netherlands :-)
Then two years later they had a son (Evert) and five years later a daughter (Ellen Jane).
They both where born in the States so my whole family lives there (in Sarasota Florida).
When my mom turned 19 they all went on a vacation to The Netherlands where my mom met my dad and fell in love.
My sweet cousin Robert who's my aunt Ellen's son just proposed to his girlfriend that got me all smoesy those little butterflies you know what I mean don't you??
I love lovestories...

This layout I made for them as a present.
I used the fabulous "Vintage Autumn" collection by Maja Designs those papers are so awesome to work with and the Imaginarium Designs pieces go so well with these papers, a match made in heaven.

So much in love:
Aren't they the cutest couple ever?
I also used some amazing Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
Two pretty doilies, leaves and flowers.
Some close-ups:

 The flag banner in the picture above is a new design, and I'm so in love with it.

I inked the chipboard pieces with just a little eggplant coloured ink then I used some pink ink to make it a little lighter. As for the chipboard pieces code:IDDL0018 RRP I used a technique I showed you before.
I also used some amazing flowers by Petaloo.
