Hearty Congrats......

When I was making this card I wasn't at all sure about the black, but when the card was finished I was really pleased with it, and it looks much prettier IRL!
Again I used my fave cart and papers from First Edition called 'Birdsong'. I punched one long edge of a piece of black cardstock and trimmed it so that the pattern was equal ( I can't abide uneven punched borders) then matted some plain cardstock and patterned paper onto it. I added some sheer black ribbon and a bow. The completed panel was adhered to the front of the card with foam tape. The sentiment was cut from Papermania pearlescent textured paper, embossed with a teeny heart embossing folder, layered up, then adhered to the panel with foam pads. A pearl was added to the dove  and some heart shaped adhesive gems to the top two corners. A multilayered bloom and a trio of gems on the ribbon completes the card.
