A Clean and Simple Romantic Card

I found a way to use one of the Dee's Friends characters without doing a great deal of colouring as I am still not too confident with my technique.  A clean and simple romantic card, but spot the OOPS!
Cut a piece of stencil card to 6” x 6”. Stamp the Joy character, the heart balloon and string and the butterfly in Jet Black archival ink.
Stamp the balloon, butterfly and character again on a page of book text.
Mask off the images.
  Add clouds to the background using the Clouds mask and the remains of Tenacious Teal Artistry ink on a stencil brush. Move the cloud mask down the page, brushing upwards off the mask each time. Remove the masks.
Colour the book text balloon and butterfly using Van Gogh oil pastels, fussy cut and add to the stamped images. Use a blending pen & nib to add Blaze Artistry ink to the book text image (dress and lips). Add Tenacious Teal and Black Shadow inks to the eyes in the same manner. Fussy cut the image and glue it to the background.
Add ‘Joy’ to the background in black archival ink.
Mat the background onto black card leaving a narrow border and add to a 7” x 7” kraft card blank.
Stamp ‘I love you’ multiple times around the edge of the card front in black archival ink.
As for the OOPS, if you look closely, you will notice that one of the 'I love you' stamps has been added upside down!

Took ages to find the Oops so not too obvious. Good idea to use book pages. Did you cut butterfly out very intricate around antenna. X
