I wasn't going to make a card today but I couldn't help myself

I had no intentions of making a card today but after I came back from my mum's place I was blog surfing and I came across the black and white challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays and I knew I had to take part. I had purchased the black and white paper sometime ago for another black and white challenge that I didn't get the chance to enter so I am very happy that I was able to use the paper on this card. For this card I covered two chipboard birds with the black and white metallic paper and then drew on the simple stem with the heart endings, the word love is a rub-on. I might just give this card to my friend who is getting married soon, she is a minimalist kind of girl so I am sure she will appreciate this card.

Thanks everyone for putting up with my many posts this week, you all must be getting sick of seeing my work :). As I mentioned before my card making helps me stay positive and happy and that's exactly what I need at the moment. 

The Challenges I have included-
CFC #36, Penguin suit-CASual Fridays
Anything goes in the linking party-Make it Mondays
All we need is love-Paper Issues
Anything goes in the linking party-Passionately Artistic

Thanks again for visiting everyone and indulging in my much needed therapy :)
