Romantic Literature

Hello, I was up this morning before the Larks - it was only 4.30am and instead of doing the laundry etc - I had some breakfast and cracked on with a card that I wanted to make for a few challenges - challenges that I always try to join in with.

The lovely Mynnette has set a fabulous challenge this week over at MAKE my MONDAY, she has asked to see our creations based on the classic "Persuasion" by Jane Austen - now I am a fan of these stories (though admit to watching the dramas on the TV rather than reading the books) - my card is based upon the "love letter" within the book - apparently Captain Wentworth's letter is suppose to be "best ever romantic love letter".  I have used old book pages as a base which have been inked with Vintage Photo and Tea Dye.  The Kaisercracft botanical paper depicts the meadow/garden scene and my two Indigo Blu images are the characters.  I have also included the love letter.  As such I have drawn lots of inspiration from the novel.

The Fashionettes over at the FASHIONABLE STAMPING CHALLENGE would like to be "shown some love".  My card is based upon a romance story.  My heart has been hand drawn and cut from greyboard before being coloured with Tea Dye and then embossed.

The ladies over at SUGAR CREEK HOLLOW this week would like to see our romantic love in their usual vintage or shabby chic style.  I hope the vintage characters and sepia monochrome tones fit their challenge.

I really enjoyed making this card ...now who to give it to?   Suzanne ~x~
