Black, White + One Other at Karen's Doodles

Happy Wednesday Peeps,

Hope everyone in the UK has been enjoying the gorgeous weather we have had lately.

It's Wednesday and time for another challenge at Karen's Doodles and this week's theme is to create a card/project using Black, White and One Other Colour. Remember to use a Karen's Doodles image, available HERE, to enter and be sure to visit the design team's awesome inspirational creations.  That was a mouthful wasn't it, I must have swallowed the dictionary, lol.  I have chosen a Christmas image, thought I would try and get ahead of the game and every little helps, as they say.

And yes, it's stitching you can see.  I pulled out the sewing machine and away I went. And strangely enough the following day my son came home from school, I was in the front garden planting some summer flowers at the time, (just setting the scene), and he said, "Mum, have you still got that sewing machine out".  I said "yes", "why".  He said look at this and turned around so that I could see a 12" hole and all of his bottom showing!    Somehow he had managed to split his trousers from the crutch up to the waist band!  So off I went again.  Not like me at all, let's hope it holds for 3 more weeks!!!  Anyway, onto my card:-


Image coloured with copics
Magnolia Paper
Snowflake Vellum (small panel, not shown very well in the photo)
All matting is Bazill c/s
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Nesties for the scalloped Square
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards
Ribbon, Pearls (altered with copics to match colour scheme) from stash

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-

Sweet Stop - Sketch
