Victorian Romance at Make My Monday

Hello everybody

I am a little late posting today for our challenge at  Make My Monday.   This week we are continuing our theme of Romance, and this time we want to see elements of Victorian Romance. 

This is my Victorian Romance card.  There is no sentiment because it is probably going to the daughter of a friend who is getting married soon, and I need to decide what would be suitable.

I inked my base card all round the edges before added the brown card and the lovely pink Pion paper which has been distress to within an inch of its life.  The photograph is mounted on a doilly which I have inked and also attached some lace to at one side.  I cut two swirls, and added flowers and a pretty pin as well. 

Since making this I have decided this needs some sassing up, so probably by the end of the week you will find a new version of this card at the bottom of the blog.

Don't forget that Make My Monday is being sponsored by Marianne Design and we have this fabulous prize for the winner at the end of the month.

I am entering this into the following challenges

Ruby's Rainbow - Vintage
Bunny Zoes - Celebrations
Crafty Bloggers Network - Shabby Chic
Creative Mondays - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean Challenge - Pink and Brown
Stamps R Us - Anything Goes
St Lukes Charity Challenge - Love and Lace
