Commissioned Valentine's Day Card

This is the first of a few valentine's Day cards I was asked to make.  This was for a lady to give to her husband.  The remit was a bit of fun but not flowery.  I have used some backing papers I won in some candy so not sure of the make.  The digital image is pre-coloured and comes from the Paper Shelter and is called Pepe L'Souris in love - isn't he sooooooooooo cute???  I have used some red card that I have embossed, ribbon, sentiment off the computer, card candy, hearts punched from red mirri card and I have distressed the edges of the papers and image.

This card fits the following challenges:
