Shall I Compare Thee...

It's Saturday therefore it's Less Is More day! The challenge set this week is to make a card using:

BLACK and WHITE 
with a touch or a splash, a hint or suggestion, a dab or a  patch of 
a colour of your choice!
 
Well my mantra has always been, 'if in doubt wear red' so with Valentine's Day just around the corner I set about making my first card.




I printed the greeting directly onto the base card using Monotype Corsiva font. I then used Shakespeare's 'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day' sonnet as the background and cut this into a circle. For the touch of red the obvious shape was a big fat heart!

I'll probably have a bit more play about with this card using different spacings and sizes of circles/hearts but for the moment this is it!
 
Thanks for looking
