Love .. In Black and White

It's all about Love this week at Papercraft Star ...


That's the theme of this week's challenge ... And love isn't always black and white ... or is it?
Well not with my card anyway ... I used up some of my scraps again and instead of using red that one perhaps associates with Love ... Mine is more monochrome ... (plus next weeks challenge is red so didn't want to use it twice) Lol!


Ok ... if you look really close you will see that the script paper is Christmas paper ... ... But I wont tell if you don't ... And I know my DH won't notice when he gets this card ... 


I cut out the lock with a Tim Holtz die that I haven't used in ages - the pewter mirri card gives it quite an authentic look.. and yes, I have used my favourite postal stamp again 


... with my favourite butterfly image ... 


The sentiment was computer generated ... 
This really came together quite quickly once I decided that I was going the monochrome route ... I guess our choice of colours probably says a lot about us ... Hmmm ...
Ok so now it's over to you ... won't you join us this week?
I'm off to the Blog to see the examples from my talented team members ... Care to join me?

Have a peaceful day and Thanks for stopping by

Oh Ross, this is fab, love the monochrome, classy and elegant. And have to say love the stamp too! Is that a Kaisercraft one? Looks really cool against that script paper and the butterfly is just lovely too!!

Love your black and white approach to this one~ great for a guy and he would probably be relieved not to see a girly (colorful) version ;) The TH lock couldn't be more perfect on your creation and the b&w butterflies add just the right amount of softness~ really well done Ros! Hugs, Rebecca
