Here is this week's sketch and my creation:

My card this week features a digistamp from Annabelle's and when I first saw it I thought of all those images of the WW2 soldiers kissing the girls when the end of the war was announced. That led me to create a collage effect background paper, using images depicting the happiness that everyone felt. The heart printed DP depicts the love that was spread around. As embellishments I used an anchor charm that started life as part of an earring, and the spray of flowers finishes off what I think has turned out to be a fabulous card (if I may say so myself!)
