The challenge at My Time to Craft this week is to make an Xtra Special card, for someone special or a special occasion. I made my DT card for my husband's Aunt who was 90 last week, so special person and occasion. I only noticed when I posted my card that one of the punched branches had landed on top of my image but I couldn't take another photo as I have already sent the card, so please use your imagination that the branch shouldn't be there. The image is a Penny Black stamp and coloured with Copics, paper is Papermania Henbury Lane. I added ribbon, roses, heart charm, computer generated sentiment, and branches punched with a L-Em punch (and scattered over the card!!!)
