Let Our Love Take Flight

One of my co-workers is about to celebrate her 18th month anniversary with her boyfriend by taking a hot air balloon ride together.  She asked me to make her a card that had a hot air balloon, the sentiment "Let Our Love Take Flight", and she wanted 18 months someplace on the card.  Due to the fact that he just purchased a house, and she has a new-ish to her house I wanted to add this fun house die as well.  I didn't want to make it too girly, since it is a card she is giving to him...I think I failed on that.  LOL  It is so hard to make cards for guys sometimes.  I wanted to go with the vintage look.  I added some burlap, hemp twine, gold gems, and flowers.  I did add a large brown doily (it's buried).
