For my card, I used Feminine Charm set. The image was colored with Copic markers and it was layered on the red mat and black mat. The edge of the black mat was created with the around edge punches. Using the same punch,  I created the border. For the border, I adhered the MME designer paper collection, pleated edge ribbon and swirl rhinestone border. The card was designed with the same designer paper collection and coordinated color cardstock. To finish off, I embellished with the red paper rose and pine needles. The red rose was sprayed with the frost shimmer spritz and DTPed with brilliance white ink to look softer and shimmer :)

I used the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS134).

 

This is the inside of the card.
