FOSTV - Romance is in the air

Apologies for this post being up late.  In all the excitement of a late, very late night watching the Superbowl I forgot to do it - sadly the Seahawks lost. Seattle was the first city in the USA we ever visited.  We did get to see them play when we last visited Seattle in 2003.

Anyway on to my card.  The challenge this week at FOSTV is a Romantic card or project. The background was done with a technique new to me (forgot what it is called but Angie just reminded me - Bokeh effect) and I think gives a dreamy look to the card, which I think adds to the romantic feel. 
Like a few of my team I used a rose as my image and it is from the Roses stamp set.

We would love you to join us in the challenge this week - not long until Valentine's day!


  1. Janine your card is gorgeous!! I love the background the did, it is perfect with the rose :)

  2. Love this background and the rose for love.........Lis

  3. Janine, this is beautiful!!! Love the Bokeh effect and the gorgeous rose! Yes! Come and join us at the CAS challenge! Phew! We don't have tv reception so we only watch Netflix but last night I found the Super Bowl on the internet and watched the last quarter. I was so rooting for the Seahawks. I'll be dating myself but I loved them when Jim Zorn was the quarterback a LONG time ago! What a terrible play at the end! Sigh.

  4. Janine your card is amazing. I just recently heard about the Bokeh technique and after seeing your card I'm definitely going to have to give it a try.

  5. Love the background! Beautiful card and wonderful coloring of the rose.
    Perfect romance card Janine.

  6. love your cards and what a coincidence this technique it is on my waiting list to make it at my blog. thanks for the reminder :)


I love to hear your thoughts - please come back soon.
