Key to Love card

It's week 58 over at 'Less is More' & it's the dreaded 'one layer card' this time & also 'Script'.
Not quite as terrified as I used to be at the thought  of one layer card week... but still  a bit worried.
Does everyone else panic at  the thought of that blank card in front of them lol ?? It always surprises
me when an idea pops into my head !!!! I am glad to report one did....and quite quickly this time ,
which is always a blessing....not to mention a  relief !!!
Anyway enough of my ramblings.............I found this beautiful keys stamp ,which was a prize I won from
'Less is More' too so how appropriate I use it here :) It's part of a set (Clear Art Stamps' Keys to Life'.
I first made a computerized script in GCF, took me ages spacing it all, getting each word  to be straight
and also craning my head sideways........... as it's a tent fold card. Anyway I did all that and chose a soft
 grey colour for the wording, apart from the main sentiment which I left black. Then I stamped my keys
 image over the top using Momento  Tuxedo black ink ( love that ink). I used a soft grey Promarker to
shade the ribbon and keys as I wanted it to be a monochrome card. I added a little glamour dust on the
 ribbons & that was it finished :) Hope you like it.
