"Just a little bit Gothic"

'Just a Little Bit Gothic'
Mum...can you please make me a card?
was the request from my eldest son this week

He has a new girlfriend and really wanted to impress her...
so my instructions were that it had to have black roses and be purple.

ummm....
so I channeled my inner goth and came up with this.


Three of my favourite stamps at the moment are in this...
The arch is from The Artist Stamper, the girl from Art Journey
and the moon from 100 Proof Press (this is new and I am loving it already!!!)

The rose I just came across in my stash and I didn't even realise that I had it...but I quite like this one as it has good movement.

And the good news is that she loooved her card!
Bonus points for my son I think lol.

Enjoy!

I would like to enter this into the following challenge~
