MMM week 37 Victorian Romance

Afternoon to you all on this wet and very windy day! Definitely a crafting day and to this end I have made 2 cards for the challenge over at Make My Monday. The continuing theme is Romance and this week they want to see Victorian Romance.
I'm not sure if 2 cards are allowed but never mind, I had already finished a card for the challenge when I saw Anna Griffin on QVC and was inspired to make a card using her papers and casing one of her ideas:)                                                                                                        




A scalloped card base with torn Anna Griffin paper and topped with some images from the internet. flowers made from the BP and leaves from my Silhouette. A couple of lace leaves sponged with Victorian Velvet DI.











This is the one inspired by Anna Griffin. Using all her papers, decoupaging the leaves and flowers and punching out several borders to layer on top of each other. Sentiment is from Darkroom door Love Letters and punched out with SU label punch
Thanks for visiting and please leave a comment so that I can visit you:)

You must be feeling romantic Val! I love the pretty rolled flowers in the first card and the amazing layered border in the second. Vicky x

Both are equally gorgeous, the deeper tones remind me of a Victorian Valentine and then we have the soft and pretty colours of Spring in your second card.
Stunning.
Wishes
