Try It on Tuesday GD


I was delighted to win a recent challenge over at Try It On Tuesday and even more delighted  to be invited to join the hugely talented team for this weeks challenge!

It was a perfect challenge for me too as the theme this week is one of my favourites...

I decided to use one of my new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps and got busy... This is most definately one of my more-is-more cards!!

I love the greyscale look of this card, as I think it really makes the small amount of colour in the image really pop :-D

And I decorated the inside too, cos everyone moans about having to try to find a white pen to write on a black card base!!

Stamps: Elaine image and sentiment - Kraftin' Kimmie; Ticket Stamp - Whimsy; Rose - Kanban; Corner stamp - Studio G; Birthday Greeting - LCI
Papers & CS: Black and White Bazzill; Theresa Collins "Posh" papers
Other: Lace, Grosgrain ribbon, Button, (all from stash); Felt - LCI
Tools: MS Arch Border punch; Marianne Die
Mediums, Inks etc: Copics; Tuxedo Black Momento; Stone Grey Stazon

Thank you so much for asking me to join in with your fabulous challenge this week, it is such an honour :-D.  Special thanks to Janet for getting me organised!!
