Happy Valentines Day to a Wonderful Couple

Here is a really sweet image from McMahon 5 Designs that I've used to create a Valentines Day card for my Mother-in-Law and Father-in-Law. They met when they were in high school and were married very young. This image, from A Valentine's Collection of Love makes me think of how they must have looked as a young couple. They will be married 50 years this coming May.
Here is the inside.I also made a box-style envelope using Priscilla's Box-Envelope Template Kit. Her kits are so easy to use! I've used other envelope templates and they are not anywhere as easy to use as Priscilla's is! I used the Spellbinders Fancy Tags on the envelope. I went for a little more ornate look on the tag by adding the heart shaped die-cut from the Cuttlebug Ornamental die-cut set.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge ~ and the two will become one
Creative Card Crew ~ Valentines
Double Dutch ~ Valentines
Cute Card Thursday ~ In the name of love
Hand Full of Stamps ~ Open to Fun
Saturday Spotlight ~ Around the House (I've had these pink paper heart doilies for over a year)
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge ~ Dazzle
