Chocolate Baroque: Garden of Love

Talk about corny titles! I just could not help it!

Hello, everyone. Hope the New Year is treating you well. I'm  kicking of the year with a busy blog - 3 posts in 5 hours!

For my first DT post of 2017 for Chocolate Baroque I'm going floral with this card using the gorgeous Big Bold Background Belle Flowers stamp. The inspiration for my card came from the various colouring books so widely available today.

I stamped the image with VersaFine Onyx Black and coloured it with Caran d'Ache Supracolor Soft Aquarelle pencils. I finished the card with a few sequins. I think this card will do nicely for Valentines Day. It will also make a lovely cover page for a notebook.

The sentiment is from Words of Love, heat embossed in red with WOW Red EP onto a strip of vellum.

Thanks for stopping by today. I have another post coming up in an hour... something more seasonal. Wrap up warm and I'll see you in a bit!
