Please take a look at my Candy here

Today I would like to show you my make for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#56) is "LOVE ACTUALLY"...and this is my midway post...

I usually make a lot of Valentine Month - my husband and I were married on Valentine's Day 1976 - this year we will be celebrating our Ruby Wedding...
so this is one of a few makes celebrating 'LOVE'!!

This card is unconventional as it is mainly black and white...

I decided to use one of Ike's Bride images


adding just a touch of colour with Promarkers.
Find Ike's images here

Once again it is an easel card, the base and easel both matted with black card then a black and white floral DP from my stash (Dovecraft Back to Basics Monochrome). This image was cut with a nesting die and matted on black.

The sentiment is from LC Designs printed on white card and again die cut and matted on black.

Finally I added some black lace rosettes.

I hope you will join in the Challenge over at Ike's World

Happy Crafting!
