CAS Black and White
Fabulous news yesterday .. .. I've been asked to join the DT on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge blog! So, I thought it was only right that I make a card for this week's challenge, although I'm not sure if I can enter it or not .. .. .. The theme is for a CAS style in black and white. Mmmmm - I was going to give this one a miss but thought surely I could come up with something easy, especially as I'm not feeling 100% at the moment. Well after a few false starts and changes of direction I created this card - I've deliberately omitted a sentiment so I can use it for anything, plus it keeps things a little simpler. I had to have a play with my new crafty goodies, they are older Marianne dies designed by Anja van Laar, and if you haven't seen her blog do take a look .. .. after several visits I've got more of her dies on my list for Santa! The musical score is a stamp from the Marianne Christmas set designed by Eline Pellinkhof called Eline's Winter Huis, and she also has a fabulous inspirational blog here. Apart from a few sparkly gems in the centre of the flowers that's it for this card, hopefully it fits the bill .. .. I sat on my hands and avoided adding faux stitching on the white layers and also from cutting out any more pretty twiddly bits!
The Marianne dies I used are:
square lacy black doily - LR0169
flower from - LR0169 (small black) and LR0168 (large white)
sprays - LR0192
Totally Gorjuss want something plain and simple this week so hopefully they will like this card - it's a lot simpler than some I've been making!
