DT card for As You Like It Challenge!

Yes, I'm a As You Like It girl lol! Love it. So pleased Annette and Samantha asked me to join them on their new challenge blog. Was going to take things easy for awhile but what the heck, keeps you going and get's a card made!  Hope you will come and join  in the fun this next fortnight.
The links on my sidebar.
Okay

This fortnight's challenge
 is 
Use your favourite RUBBER STAMP and why
please remember to so why in your post!
A tall order for any of us I would think, we buy them cause we like them, some never see ink and others become firm favourites.
I had several in mind but decided to go for cute and  a Sarah Kay called 'Sweet Romance'. Love the shy, innocent and bygone look to this adorable looking pair. Just like hubby and me all those years ago lol! I was only fifteen and he eighteen. Not sure if I was that shy though lol!

Recipe for love
Papers from Etsy printed out on white Linen card, so getting to love Purples!
Memory box wreath
Martha Stewart border punch
Ribbons/Lace from stash
Pearls The Hobby House
A smidge of Glamour Dust


Ran out of the dark Purple card for the inside. Didn't plan ahead did I, but then I hadn't intended dressing up the inside but think it really finishes a card off. So had to make do with white linen card and coloured the edges with a Promarker, did the job.

Edited. Some of you wanted to know the paper pack designer on Etsy - http://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/75651135/mauve-purple-digital-papers-for?ref=shop_home_active
