Fairy Tale

Hi All!  It's been a busy week but I finally had time to sit down and make a card!  This one's been percolating in my head ever since I saw what the new challenge was over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog- the theme is Love Is In The Air and it's supposed to be a romantic card.  For some reason when I do romantic themed cards, especially wedding cards, I always seem to default into a classic black and white with little touches of metallic like silver or bronze.  It just seems so classy and maybe a little like a throwback to the old black and white movies that I love- now that's how romance should be :)  Since I wanted to keep with the black and white theme for the whole card (and because I've been a little obsessed with coloring my images in black and white lately) I wanted to find an image that would lend itself well to being done black and white and I knew I found the right one in As You Wish (grab it here).  Couple the perfect image with the perfect sentiment  from My Favorite Things- WTG Well Read clear stamp set and I had all the makings for a romantic card...
Here's hoping I never outgrow a good fairy tale!
