We have created a Romantic Ribbons 'post card' form for you to use, to write an on-line postcard from your recommended romantic place.  Recommend a romantic urban place, space or walk and be creative in your post card prose!

We do hope you will recommend some romantic places and spaces, simply follow the instructions below:

- giving as detailed an address for it as possible e.g. Church Yard Passage, St. Giles' Church, Camberwell, London SE5 (It doesn't have to be in London).

Romantic Ribbons
 

Have some fun creating a post card from your recommended romantic urban place, space or walk.

Write no more than one hundred words, as if you were writing a postcard from the place, space or walk you have recommended, enticing others to visit.

Here's an example - "Spring in London is made fresh with daffodils in the park and cooing doves in the trees. Inside the walls of a King's tower, your blood will thrill with adrenalin and your eyes be dazzled by rubies, emeralds and sapphires fit for a Queen. When the moon makes the white stones of the tower brilliant against the black night, a barge luxurious enough for Cleopatra will carry us up river. We will indulge in delicacies to eat and to drink, before we lie on soft cushions, making love against the rhythm of the water. Join me."

Write your postcard in the text box below keep it to less than 100 words please.

Read the rules of entry, and tick the "I Agree" box and remember to submit entry by clicking the send button. A confirmation of receipt of your entry will be sent to the e mail address you have given.
