This will be a second card for today. I read about a challenge on Joan's Gardens Blog and I thought I would try doing a card for it.
Here is what you need to do for Joan's Gardens #2 Weekly Challenge | Joan's Gardens
- Create a Valentine in "non-traditional" colors
- Use some kind of lace
- Use a flower - rose if possible
- Use a key - optional
Before I even started the card I knew I wanted the focal point of the card to be this beautiful heart die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs which I had purchased from Joan's Gardens.
I don't think of "black" as being a traditional color so my aim was to make a card primarily using black and white but I did add a touch of red because of the rose I wanted to use. After I added the layer with the red rose there was an open area above the stem that just seemed so empty so I added the strip of red gems and another strip off set under the image.
Originally I had punched an edge the same as the hearts that run along each side of the card with white card stock but then realized I had not "lace" on the card. So, I removed that edge of hearts and replaced it with some delicate white lace. I didn't have any type of key which was optional.
I hope this meets the requirements for the challenge, but it was still a fun card to make.
