Penny Black Saturday challenge # 35

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend so far.
Last week I was working on a lot more challenges than usual,...but the upside is my stash of cards is There are so many fabulous challenges out there its hard to choose which ones to play.

This is my card for the Penny black Saturday Challenge # 35. The challenge this week is "Romance".

Posted by Picasa

I started this card by stamping with Perfect medium, X and O's and kisses on the black card. It is really hard to see in the picture. I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I added some stickles and used glossy accents on the roses. I used my MS lace doily punch for the bottom. Not really too much more to it...a few pearls and buttons. a ribbon and bow and there you have it, my take on "Romance".

I hope you like it.
Thanks for dropping by

Beautiful card Karen. You always make it SOUND so easy. My dad had surgery last week so I'm a bit behind in keeping up with my favorite blogs.
