Card for Romance

Today I have finally got to use these lovely black and white papers called Damask Black and White Diamond and  Damask White and Black Diamond.
The best thing about these papers are the added smaller version of the pattern under the main design. 
Hence the name 'Combo Papers'.  This makes it so easy and fun to mix and match the papers on a card.

So on to my card.  I started with the Craftmad April Card Sketch....yes, I am finally catching up on a few things. :-)  I must admit when I look at the sketch I don't see a great card but the outcome I really do like.  I really have to try out more sketch challenges, makes me do more layering.  I started with Stamping Up Basic Grey and then a layer of handmade black paper then the Damask Black and White Diamond paper.  Next was a layer of the black handmade paper and a square of the the smaller print from the 'Combo Paper' of Damask White and Black Diamond.  The sentiment is a silver rub-on and I added the cute heart bling at the end.  Finished with the thin red ribbon and bow.

The end of the week is here and we are heading into a long weekend.  Guess what the weather is doing....... yes, it is clouding over and getting ready for all those people that plan to go camping.  :-)  I am sure it will be fine next Tuesday and probably even cold again.  My weather predictions anyways.
Well have a great weekend everyone. 
I will be back tonight with a Design Team creation for the new Cardmadfairy Digi Day Challenge but otherwise catch up with you Monday.

Oh....and next week I can tell you a little more about a new challenge. :-)
