This one was supposed to introduce a special deal for one of the hotel clients of my internship employer.  Hence, the cheezy heart implying romance, and the cheezy sea oats implying beach.  The whole thing was done in Adobe Illustrator, as I recall, and brought into PhotoShop for some tweaking.  I liked the pen stroke effect in illustrator, that's why I used it on the sea oats.  I also added a gradiated border because people are always telling me my images don't blend in enough.
