This card was a commissioned one - I was chatting with my neighbour and described a card that I was making as 'dramatic', as the colours I was using are rather unconventional for the occasion.
Ah she said - it's my friend's birthday later in the month and as she is dramatic, could you make a card like that for her - so I did, and this is the result
The lace and thread was given to me this week by another friend. I am so blessed as there are many exquisite pieces of lace in the bag, and numerous colours of this thread - all on cones. Enough to see my card making days out, and I am eyeing some of it for lace making too.
I embossed the sentiment directly to the black card, but stamped and embossed the rose (from Kiwistamping, one of my original stamps) onto a snippet of white card, and coloured it with pencils and fussy cut it before adding it to the card front.
I finished the rose with multiple layers of WoS - the photo below shows the sparkle, but is unfortunately a bit out of focus :-)
The black layer was mounted over a white base, with a vertical line scored down either side of the black panel.

(The rose stamp is over 12 years old, the sentiment is similar)
