ROP/BnW Challenge- Sweet November

Hello all!!

How is everyone?? I'm sorry I've been away all week. I've missed blogging here, and the smiles I get everytime I see your comments. Last Monday we had to start a fresh challenge at ROP/ BnW challenge blog, but some of the DT members and their families were sick, so we postponed till today.

This time it's talented Anki's tun to set the challenge, and she chose the movie "Sweet November" as the theme. She challenged us to a romantic card;obviously because she chose a romantic film as the theme. I went for a Christmas card with a romantic/ love sending theme. Reds and golds are romantic, no? So hopefully I hit the right button :) I used this week's lovely Just Magnolia sketch.. I missed taking part in this challenge :)

I used Tilda with that darling look and those cute hearts in her lap for my card, and stamped the Silent Night music behind her. Should I remind you that both of them are Magnolia stamps, and you can get these quick from Summer's Store. You can also get these lovely Basic Grey papers from there as well: Eskimo Kisses. Her service is impeccable and she's always getting more lovely goodies for you to choose from!!!

I also gave the card a vintage feel, and distressed the music panel with aged Mahogany Distress ink, and later added some gold stickes as well. I also added some to the tips of the roses. A gold butterfly, gold square brads and gold corners were chosen to coordinate, and Basic Grey rhinestones in the right hand side of the card. The sentiment is clear Studio G stamp. I stamped it with Walnut Stain on white cardstock, crumbled the paper and then I flattened it again. With the help of some foam, I went around the panel with Antique Linen Distress ink, and also made it look "oldish" :)

Gold stickles were added aroound its edges as well. Tilda is also coloured in reds Distress inks, basically Aged Mahogany and some Tattered Rose is all I used. Her hair is done with Frayed Burlap and Brushed Courduroy.

You have two weeks to join us in this challenge, and let me remind you that Summer is always generous in her prizes for each challenge!

I hope you like it, and that you tell me what you think of this card. I am very honoured to have you here,and I hope you keep coming to visit me and my creations Blessings to you and to your loved ones, and as always.. Smile!

Thanks for looking
