Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 36 - Black and White

Good morning!  Hope you are enjoying the week!

This weeks Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge is Black and White

I got all carried away with this challenge and now have all sorts of images coloured up in black and white!  I'll try to actually make a card with them and post them later this week!!  In the end I finished two cards :-)

This card is perhaps one of my recent favourites - I love the papers from my Fancy Pants "It's the little things" pad, the black and white ones in particular are stunning!

I used Clarabelle from Kraftin Kimmie - it was a bit tricky cutting round her antennae!!  I added a light coat of stickles to her wings

And used some of cuts to decorate the inside - greeting is by Woodware

I love this flower which I made out of tulle - hiding in there is a butterfly charm

Talking of butterflies, I then made a CAS card, to be added to my notelet collection! (although this one is a tall and skinny one!!)

Love the saddle stitched ribbon behind the squares.  The butterflies are cut using a Joy Crafts die, embossed and then inked with Black Soot Distress Inks.  The sentiment is by Papermania.

I decorated the inside too using an Artemio stamp set.

That's it from me today, thanks for stopping by and hope you can join in with the challenge :-)
