Penny Black Papermania!

Ages since I made a romantic card, loved the cute stamp from Penny Black.  Won the Papermania Paper Packs over a year ago and hadn't got around to using them; now I look at the papers and see how pretty the colours are and wonder why it has taken me so long to use them.

Background papers - Papermania Rose Garden 9x9 Pad, Nitwits Cotton Candy Kisses collection
Red card - The Papermill
Stamp - Penny Black "Micey Day"
Button twine - The Works
Heart Charm, brads and mini envelope - stash
Flowers - Marianne Die
Sentiment - Papermania Rose Garden 12x12 pad
Colouring medium - ProMarkers
Distressing Ink - Whispers Straw Mat Ink
