Hi and welcome, thank you for stopping by....

I added a smaller panel of black card to an 8" square, ivory card base

Then a very pretty paper (my stash) on top of the black panel

Black lace was then adhered to this and secured behind the black card prior to adhering to the card base

Another black, oblong panel was cut and more of the paper added to it

A Martha Stewart punch was used to create the border, on this panel, in black cardstock and 3 flat back pearls

The sentiment was stamped and embossed and a die cut added around the sentiment

I used a 'Wink Of Stella' around the rose and on the paper border,  the sparkle from this is gorgeous

Two panels, in black cardstock were cut for the inside of the card and corner scissors used (I've had these scissors for years and think they may be Fiskars)

I used more paper to add to the black card and the same scissors on all corners

A die was used for the black filigree panel and the verse stamped using a black ink pad

Now....  I can promise you that after today you won't see the cards, below, again LOL

We had Mark 1 showing the white shadow....  didn't like that at all

Mark 1 

Mark 2 
 Mark 2 with the black shadow, really liked this one but not so keen on the centre black panels, then the other day I realised what I hadn't done....

 Mark 3.... much, much better and should have been finished like this the first time, don't know where my head had been!

Success at last!
