Challenge Card

With all the thoughts about love and romance in the air (from making Valentines) I was reminded of weddings.  So I decided to take some time and whip up a couple of wedding cards.
I am entering this card in this month's Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge, which has as it's theme "All You Need is Love."  You can find the challenge HERE.  I am also entering it into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, whose theme this week is "New Beginnings."  That challenge can be found HERE. Okay, this card will fit in SO MANY challenges this week, that I am also putting it in the "Love is In the Air" challenge at the Going Grey at Scrap Creations which is HERE. I have never entered a card in more than one challenge (that I can remember, anyway).  There was actually another one but of course I can't find it back!!!  The theme was to make a card without using ribbon or fibers of any kind.  That was really HARD for me!

This card was made with a classic older Penny Black image that I have used many times over the years.  It was stamped in Memento ink and colored with alcohol markers and colored pencils. The luscious paper is from SEI and the border is a Martha Stewart punch.  I layered the image on a little doily that I have actually had for years--seriously! If you look real close, you will see tiny pearls on the doily as well as on the border.
Hope you like it!
