Romance

Romance is this weeks Theme at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I decided to use this adorable dog from Penny Black's clear set "Critter Party".
Image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil. The image was cut out with my cutterbee scissors. I like to cut out very detailed so these sharp scissors are a MUST. The card is rather simple. Again, I felt like using a circle doily. I have fallen in love with doilies! The flowers were punched out with Su punches, I just added polka dots to the white flowers with a SU marker and attached with black brads. The sentiment is from SU's retired set "happy harmony" To finish the card off I added the lace border with ribbon, used my ticket corner punch for the sentiment and did some paper piercing along the edges.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a GREAT monday!
