I thought that I would use this card as my 'Romance' challenge card. It has been made for my Brother-in-law but trying to get near to the Claret and Blue of his beloved football team. I used a hue lighter as I did not want the card to be too dark.
I have used Dufex for the images on a background of a paper from Core'dinations Gemstones. I used some heart ribbon that I bought up in Fleetwood for the side borders and cut out a wrapture in more paper from Core'dinations Gemstones and then used more ribbon that I bought in Fleetwood.
Although it does not show in this photo - there is a lovely pearlescent sheen to the card. inside the card, I have put a border or Dufex down the right hand side and finished it with an insert that has the image of the main topper faded behind the words.
