I then went ahead and pierced holes about a half centimeter apart...
...and then stitched it.
Then I was stuck. I didn't know what photo to use and what papers to use. I remembered a photo of my son, Wynand and his beautiful wife, Nadia taken at Nadia's sister's wedding last year. The colours were perfect to compliment my stitching. Yes, it is that crazy...
I then searched my stash and found the Blue Fern Studios Autumn Anthology papers that I haven't even cut into yet....and after a bit of mixed media to enhance the background and set a mood...my page turned into a rather romantic one...and I love it♥

Some close ups:
I love the soft romantic feel of the patterned papers. The dimensional stickers are from the Prima Epiphany collection.
...and my title takes center stage.
I very seldom use flowers these days....and I have a huge stash. This page just called for flowers.
The chipboard was heat embossed with Lindy's Midnight Teal embossing powder.
