MMCS DT Card - hearts and flowers

Evening all :)

I had a lovely day today, I took my wonderful mum to the cinema - we saw Anna Karenina. It's really good! The presentation of it is a little strange - it's done in a sort of theatrical way, it mimics being at the theatre with stage changes and whatnot, but it's done really well. Keira Knightley was amazing in it - she is so talented. Not one of my favourite actresses personally (possibly due to being envious of how ridiculously good-looking she is! haha), but she did a fantastic job in this. Well worth the watch, and Mum enjoyed it too.

Anyway, over at MMCS Challenge Blog today, we have the theme of 

Hearts and Flowers

and we're sponsored by the always wonderful

who are providing our lucky winner with 7 digis of the winner's choice from their store.

So here's the card I made for it, I'm mad into monochrome at the minute for some reason, and I've had a few wedding cards to make lately and I think B&W works so well for them.

The image and sentiment are from LOTV, the flowers and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ribbon I got from my local sewing shop, the swirl is a Marianne D flourish, the papers are Papermania and the heart charm is from Ribbon Girl.

A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers and Stickled up. Stardust was out of stock when I was making my order and I ordered a different one that I don't like as much :(
