Vintage Valentine

Hell0 again :)
While browsing through the challenges on the Daily Dare, I came across one that was to make a vintage valentine card. I really liked the idea, and I knew the image I wanted to use. Now hubby is as enthusuastic as he can be about my crafting, but he's not going to appreciate a vintage valentine card. So, I decided to make this a digital project. I know some challenge blogs that definitely do accept digital work, but there are many more that don't mention it, so I don't know if this will disqualify me from some of the challenges. If I've entered your challenge and you don't allow digital entries, please accept my apologies.
The lady image is from Art Freebies, the butterfly is from DezinaWorld, I did the vine in PSP with a script by Daisy Doodles, formerly known as Jules' Junk, and the rest is entirely my own.

So I was on a ission to find other challenges that I could combine with a vintage valentine, and I found a few.
Our Creative Corner is having a sketch challenge.
The Inky Impressions challenge is to include pink and hearts in your piece.
The Belli Challenge is to use hearts.
The Treehouse Challenge blog has asked for work that includes a flower and a butterfly.
The Cuttlebug challenge is to create a Vintage Valentine.
The Diva Coffee Break blog are having a colour challenge, to use Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal, Regal Rose and Old Olive. And there's an extra on their challenge this week, if you enter after having seen my post, could you please let them know by mentioning it on Mr Linky, because I'll hopefully get a freebie :D
And last but by no means least, the Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge blog is having a Valentine's themed challenge.
