This card was one of those that took me almost a week to make. I could not decide what to do with this skecth, so I tried one image, and then I tried another image - then I desided what image to use and then I forgot about it. I finally ende up with Priscillastyles Corset - it is perfect for the sketch! The roses just begs to be highlighted - so why resist?

I gave the corset a hadwritten background before I printed it. I printed it twice, colored one of them black and cut it out. Poped it up on foamdots for dimension. I added som white lace and lots of white pearls. At the bottom I added two black roses - they don't show very well in the picture.

The whole card is made just out of black and white cardstock. The backround was stamped with several different stamps from Layers of Colors, then I added a big pice of lace that I got in a RAK from Lovely Linda. I know I should be careful and save, but it looks soo good!
Thank you Linda!

Then I added a black satin ribbon that my mum bought for me. Thank you mum!
At the top and bottom of the centersquare I have added some black lace that I got in a RAK form my Aunt Wenche! Thank you Wenche!
(Lots of thank you's going on to day )
The swirl is embossed with Black Soot EP and the heart is embossed with red EP.
