With Love


I wanted to try something a bit different from my usual style and so I trawled blogland and saw this and was totally inspired (although my effort is definitely second best). I am quite pleased with how it turned out and hope to develop this style more in the coming weeks.

I originally made this card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is 'Special Someone'. I may have left it a little late, but maybe I can just get in under the wire.

But it also fits 4 other challenges all with a 'love' theme....
