For my friend


The new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More is,    'Black and White',  it  is hosted by Kim.
We have two sponsors Woodware and  Di's Digi Stamps, please pop over for all the details.
 It always amazes me how many shades of white there are, especially when you gather a few pieces altogether.
I used three identical  sheets of patterned paper from a stack,  one was  mounted on a black base card.  The other two were fussy cut around the flowers to give some dimension down one side. The black die cut came in a goodie pack from a friend, this card will be sent off as a thank you to her. The other additions came from my stash.


 This is the scene  we opened our curtains to this morning.   There is a lovely old church  in the village across the valley, you can just see the steeple through the fog at  the bottom of the picture.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.

  13. Beautiful card. The black and white theme can look rather harsh, but you've softened it beautifully with the flowers and lighter tones.
