Love you card for The Card Concept: Romantic Roses Challenge

Hello & happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely weekend, and hopefully found some time to be creative!
I my self was not at all creative at all this weekend, my creative juices just weren't flowing. It's like writers block for crafters or something lol. Hopefully I will have better luck this week:)
With that being said though I do have a card to share with you, that I created last week for The Card concept: Romantic Roses Challenge.
I  struggle with which category my card would fit into for this challenge. I think it would best fit into the classy & elegant category.

I stamped the roses from Fifth avenue floral set by Stampin up and I colored them all using colored pencils. I always remembered when coloring as a child with my grandmother that she use to always shade in black and how pretty I thought it looked so I gave it a try with the flowers, turned out a little dark in some areas but over all I like the way it turned out.
The sentiment I created using two different stamp sets (will list below) that I cut out and popped up with some dimensional adhesive.
I added some lace I had hanging around and some twine to finish it off.  

Thank you so much for stopping by to look at my card!! Hope you have a good start to your week:)
