Crafty Catz Challenge: Black + one other colour


I'm scheduling this post so will keep it brief. By now I would have had my operation on 13th and am probably in a recovery mode. BUT...

It's finally Friday and time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Catz Challenge Blog! Exciting times :)

This week's challenge is called 'Black + one other colour' and was chosen by our sweet Aunty Sue (skin & hair colours on your image are allowed also white may be counted or not as a colour). Easy, right?

The sponsor for this week is...

Prize 3 digi images

My card: 

My card was made with one of the gorgeous stencils I received from my lovely friend Loll! She also sent me an amazing card! It's sooo beautiful! Thank you, Loll!
How GORGEOUS is the background!!! When I saw the stencil I thought it deserved some special treatment so I combined it with the lush purple Glitter Frosting Paste by GlitzCraft. I masked off the area under the ribbon as I was going to stamp my sentiment there, but changed my mind and used a perfectly matching satin ribbon instead. I tied a pretty bow and added a charm. I loved the opulent dramatic look so left it at that. What do you think? I hope you feel inspired enough to have a go at the challenge yourself! I'll keep my glittery fingers crossed for you :) 

I always love to hear from you and appreciate you spending time leaving me a comment. I will be back soon! Until then, have a wonderful weekend! 

Best wishes,
