Moonlight and Romance

Here's my offering for today which is a card that fits quite a few challenges as there are rather a lot about with a love theme-not really a surprise with Valentine's Day at the weekend.
I've again gone for a shabby chic look as I really like making that sort of background paper at the moment. It's very satisfying screwing something up and knowing it will look fabulous when you've finished! I sprayed my piece of white card with water and scrunched it up. I opened it out, sprayed with more water and scrunched again then opened it out and rubbed red and pink inks on the creases. I then ironed it and stamped Clearly Inspired Stenciled Flowers MC3216 roses all over in VersaColor Rose Red ink. I tore the edges.
The image I used, together with the heart shaped music manuscript come courtesy of the lovely June at Art Freebies blog where she generously shares loads of gorgeous images to use in personal artwork.  The card also gave me the opportunity to use one of the beautiful heart shaped doilies I finally managed to find a couple of weeks ago after seeing these on several of my American blogging pals blogs and wanting them!
I finished off with an inked computer generated sentiment and some pearl trim.
