Valentine Blues

I am on a roll at the moment. I really can't remember the last time I made this many cards! Tonight my card was inspired by a friend of mine at our Craft Group that challenged us to come up with a Valentine's Card using 1 colour & definately no RED . I have to say I am just loving these Prima Botanical Papers & I am rapidly working my way through them. I am going to be surprised if they last me till the end of the week!!
**Have replaced the photos with better ones**

Unfortunately the papers look more cream than blue tonight so I will have to retake the photos in the morning :-( I printed off an oval & stamped the image of the rose. I then coloured round the rose to give it a negative effect. I layered the papers on to pearlescent card & then had the bright idea of adding pearls as a frame.

 Here is a close up of the image.The lace was originally white with pink hearts so I coloured it with my Promarker.  I added 4 slightly larger pearls to the corners of the card x Clare x
