Times to treasure

Since I saw the LOTV challenge for this month I have had so many tunes going through my head.  I finally settled on The Book of Love, by Peter Gabriel, as I thought it went well with this image.   I  wanted  it to be a romantic card, but I also wanted a change from reds and pinks this time – so I’ve used blue and brown, which is a combination of colours I enjoy using on Anniversary cards.

Times to treasure

What I used –

Image – Times to Treasure by LOTV – coloured with Promarkers

Papers and gems from my stash

Heart and flower border die from Magnolia Doohickey, lavish branch die by Memory Box

Flowers from the Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts

Sentiment from LOTV
