Exploring The Unknown

A few days ago I was working on my blog and noticed that the new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge was Hearts and Flowers.  Instantly my mind went to Fifty Shades of Grey.  If you haven't read the book, basically when Ana wants to date romantically, Christian tells her, "Hearts and flowers?  That's not something I know."  So I decided to make a card with that theme, using a technique I hadn't done before.  Inlaid die cutting with a shadow image like a heart, I'd done.  But with something so detailed, I'd been too chicken.  Until now.

And SQUEE!!!!!  Fifty Shades Darker opens in a week!!!

Just a few challenges:
Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!!!
