Clearly in love..... it finally happened...i have given in and made a valentines card...but not the conventional i'm sure i can (& will) fit this into quite a few challenges..which i will list below ...but one of the challenges was monochrome..white & one other but i thought i'd try and make something a little old fashioned and stuck with grey...the background paper was plain but i have stamped over it with a couple of clear PB stamps called clearly in love...the sentiment is from the same set....ive also distressed again as i thought this would continue the "old" theme...its the first time ive tried the whole mono thing so would really appreciate any comments..and if you like what you see why not become a follower and i'll pop over & say hi!!...thanks for looking....Debs x x
