Love&Lace Part2

Here is the second Love&Lace themed card.

Ended up more masculine look this time... I guess! I wasn't planning to make a masculine card at the beginning but I felt like making more masculine, a bit of vintage look card somehow after choosing pattern paper. I'm not gonna tell you I incorporated the patterned paper of Christmas for this card... :x shhhhhh! haha
 It's from Simple Stories "25 Days Of Christmas" came out 2011 I think...

I cut out Eiffel tower image from "Newspaper Eiffel Tower" (CG417) and embellished with lots of stones. Customized sentiment "FOREVER LOVE". Originally the sentiment is "FRIENDS FOREVER" but I used only "FOREVER" and added "love" below it. 
I was going to stamp "Love" with only black ink but wanted to change it to red... then I stamped it again with red ink. I didn't meant to use this piece but why not? it looked like shadow stamping for me a bit, so I decided to use it in the end! :D

Anyway, thank you so much for visiting my page!

This card is submitted to Hero Arts February contest.

I can't miss these theme. "Love and Lace"
LOVE lacy stuff!
I made this card for entering Hero Arts February contest.

Here is what I made...

I tried make it simple as much as possible. Hope it worked!
I stamped 3 different fonts of "XOXO". (CL586 XO from Hero Arts)
And I used three different colors of distress ink. ( aged mahogany, victorian velvet, fired brick)
I stamped xoxo a couple of times using stamp magic to make it crisp image. 

Heart stamp is from CL596 Pattern Hearts&Flowers set. (Hero Arts/BasicGrey)
Added white lace ribbon, some cute red heart shaped jewel stones and twines.
The one which was embellished over the white lace is grosgrain ribbon. 

Thank you for looking at my project!
