Gothic Elegance

Hello everyone,

Just a real quick post of the card I just made:


I used patterned card stock for my base, distressed the edges and added heat embossed damask patterned die cuts.


A chipboard heart piece was painted with red acrylic paint and then covered with one step crackle.


The black crinkled bow was embellished with a simple black rhinestone.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Studio 75 challenge "Heart"

Evolution Scrap "Red Accent" challenge

Frilly and Funkie "Love is in the Air"

Crafty Card Makers "Love, Love, Love"

Crafty Gals Corner challenge #58 Sweethearts (Use a heart)

RRR challenge #134 Anything Goes

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by...
