Commissioned Valentine's Day Card

I was asked to make a Valentine's Day card for a lady customer to give to her fiance.  I have used my Joanna Sheen Jane Shasky CD and used this gorgeous rose image which has been decoupaged.  I decided not to use backing papers from the CD but kept to plain burgundy and some holographic card.  The flowers I have made with my Tim Holtz rosettes die and some scraps of red paper I had.  The card has been finished off with some buttons, personalised insert, sentiment off the computer, lace and ribbon.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
