ANYTHING GOES 21st CHALLENGE














Week 21, can't believe it. The theme this week is Black & White. I had to make a card for my Sister-in-Law Jackie who is 60 on Thursday, and one of the other DT members Sue at http://beyondablandblog.blogspot.com/ gave me an idea for a card for special BIG birthdays. Using Tilda with all her newspapers, coloured in distress inks. The papers are Magnolia which fits perfectly. Lynne at http://www.craftden.co.uk/ stocks lots of magnolia's. Stamps, papers, and the new Xmas magnolia Mag is due in tommorow too. We all get very excited when the new Mag is out. It's always worth the wait.I have used some black paper from Lynne's pick and mix for behind the magnolia paper, so that the card wouldn't get too heavy with card behind. The punch is a martha stewart ( lots of new one's of those in at Craft Den too ). I have also added ribbon across the card. Added a bit of Prima bling, and various flowers in black & white. Made the pin with crystals and a few beads. The letters are cut using the storybook cricut cartridge. Thankyou Sue for the idea. Great entry's again last week, hope we get even more this week. Hope you like mine. Love Sandra x
