Victorian Gothic Card Challenge

Here is the challenge photo for inspiration at the Forever Night Challenges.  The theme is Victorian Gothic.  My card uses the chandelier as the main image from an  ippity stamp set called Regal Greetings.  I have also used three sets from Stampin’ Up!  Sentiment is from Loving Thoughts. Border is from Rue Des Fleurs that I stamped using the Stamp-a-majig. The embellishment is from the Fresh Vintage set.  All punches are SU, as is the gray cardstock and the embossing folder.  I used Dew Drops Moonlight to rub over the embossed panel. The gold cord and the fire rhinestone brad are also SU.  I used red ep on the chandelier and popped it up.  The border was cut with scallop scissors. j-4857imagineOh, the black eyelet the gold cord goes through is by Stamping Fun Addict.  I am entering this card in the Make it Monday challenge too!
