A valentines card

Well with Valentines drawing ever closer thought I'd better think about making a card.  I did but I'm not overly happy with the end result!  I have used papers from Jewel Britannia collection on cd from My Craft Studio, I bought it with some of my birthday money along with 4 card kit books when I saw it on C&C the other day. I just love the papers especially the Union Jack ones and when I saw the one with the telephone boxes on I knew I had just the right stamp to use with it, the telphone box stamp is from Papermania Urban stamps Portobello Road collection, I did quite a bit of distressing and inking  to go with the feel of the flag, the sentiment is pc generated and then I got stuck I knew I needed something to finish the card off but I just couldnt get it right, I eventually settled on the circle of Union Jack paper with a heart and topped off wth the little gold charm but like I said not really happy with it but at least it didnt get resigned to the bin and I still love the papers! lol

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
