Black & White Engagment Card

Hi everyone, belated Happy New Year wishes!
I apologise for being awol so long but I was laid low with a dreaded lurgy over 
the festive season & I'm only just getting back to normal now!
Praise the lord for antibiotics!
So, I finally have a card to share with you,
this one was made a few weeks back but I didn't get a chance to share it
before I took to my bed!
If you're on the Crafting Cafe FB group blog hop, welcome!
I'll try to get round all the blogs as soon as I can!

A little 6x6 inch Monochrome Engagement card!
I used my all time favourite Cuttlebug Swiss Dots & Swirls embossing folders 
(I love these because they are so versatile)
for texture, then added some lace & ribbon from my stash. 
I created a sentiment button in my graphics programme, which I printed & cut out 
using Spellbinders circle dies 
I added a little punched heart detail in one corner & a little bling to balance it up.  
Simple yet elegant!
Thanks for popping in, I hope you like my card!
