Romantic Rose

I love the theme at Less is More this week, it's 'Newsprint' and lots of ideas popped  into my head when I saw what it was.

This is my second card, this time I have used papers from the My Mind's Eye Madison Avenue collection and as always my inspiration came from Pinterest.


Unfortunately, this is one of those cards that just does not photograph well!  I cut the heart with a Sizzix die and the rolled rose is a Marianne Creatables die.  The lace border is a Fiskars edge punch.

Less is More Week 195 - Newsprint
