Sugar Creek Hollow,' Black and White'.

At last I can share some good news, I have been wanting to shout out loud  for a little while, but today I can.
The  fantastic DT over at Sugar Creek Hollow have asked me to join the team. I am truly thrilled and honoured and look forward to the challenges.

 So,the new Challenge for  this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow is - Black and White, the only place you can add colour is on the Focal Image.
I made this card using plain black and white cardstock for the layers, the base card is also white.
 To trim the corners I used an embossing  corner punch. The die cuts are by Memory Box.
One of the layers is stamped with my favourite old French script stamp, so well used I never put it away.
 The main image  is part of a Queens Dresser Drawers stamp, after cutting away some wording etc,  this was  given the splash of colour using watercolours.
I hope you will pop over and see what we have been making,  read all the details and join us this week.
