Especially for you

Actually, this one's a belated birthday card, but I thought the DP with the sentiment was just as fitting.

I coloured the Penny Black stamp with distress ink and also applied a tiny bit of ink on the edges of the Papermania DPs (Henbury Lane). I used the same ink to colour the small corner die cut, which had originally been cut out of a piece of lilac cardstock using my Silhouette. The scalloped frame is also a Silhouette design. I applied a little bit of glitter glue on the flower hearts and finished the card off with a few pearls from my Viva Perlen-Pen (ice white). The layout is based on this week's sketch from Mojo Monday.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
