Roses on Paper challenge 25 - Romance or Sweet

This weeks Roses on Paperchallenge is to create either a Romantic or Sweet card.  So I guess you could say that I went with the Romantic option......lol!!!!  I made this card a few weeks back and thought it appropriate for this challenge, this is the first time for me to join in with this challenge blog. 

I have to admit that I really enjoyed making this card eventhough it took ages.  The papers are a mix of Anna Griffin and Basic Grey, they have been slightly distressed then edges sewn with my sewing machine.  I used die cuts to cut the hearts, then stamped them with a Crafty Individuals crackle background stamp, bought at the NEC,  I then added some gold embossing powder and Glamour Dust here and there.  "Dinner Tilda" (available from Dies To Die For) has been coloured with Copics and with some more Glamour Dust and Liquid Pearls.  The leaf branch I bought from the NEC, lace, pearly hearts, gold string, tulle, pins from my stash, flowers from Dies To Die For.  I  printed the sentiment on my PC.

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis, luv 'n' crafty hugs to you all xx vicki xx
