Well to work off some of those brightly wrapped choccie eggs I decided to take up a challenge this morning - to make a card which is predominately black.
This is a colour you don't find me using very often which is why I've still got a nearly full pad of Paper Cellar black & white papers (bought about 3 years ago!). I picked one with a pattern that would make the perfect background for the Memory Box orchard tree frame die as there's foliage and a bird sitting on a branch, so it was just a case of lining the two up and sticking in place. I used the negative part left after cutting the die as a frame and after adding a piece of ribbon and a Clearly Besotted sentiment I attached it all to a 5 x 7 inch card base.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Less Is More challenge 'predominantly black'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'buttons +/or bows'
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'happy birthday'
Die Cut Divas challenge 'in the garden'
Just realised I'd forgotten to link up to
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'frame it'
Thanks for taking the time to pop by today and for all your lovely comments.
