Love and Romance at Little Claire's

Hi Folks
Hope everyone's week is going as planned.  It is my day off today so will be heading into my crafty room this morning.  This afternoon I am taking my Mother-In-Law to the hospital for her physio appointment.  She is doing really well after her replacement knee operation.  She is managing to get around using her crutches and doing a little bit more each day.

Today sees the start of our second digi challenge over at Little Claire.  Our theme for this month is:
Love and Romance

Here is my inspiration project using a lovely image called Silhouette Wedding.

I used mirror card for all the matting.  For the background I embossed the bottom half using my flourish embossing folder.  For the top of the card I used my ivy corner die.  I added some roses and lace across the centre of the card.  Some distress ink around the edges helped to soften the look and I added a gem heart to the image topper.

The image I have used can be found here.  

The prize for this months challenge is 5 digi images of the winners choice from Little Claire.
