Say it in .... Black & White

Welcome back to my blog for our Friday challenge with Annabelle Stamps!! Our challenge for this week is to create a card in Black & White. At first I thought I might battle with this, but in the end I didn't and rather ended up having FUN with this challenge!!

This is not going to be a long post. I am feeling like death warmed up, the flu is hitting me in a big way. On top of that I had my first session of Boot Camp this morning, and am already stiff as heck. So needless to say I am feeling a bit sorry for myself :(

So without further ado here is my card:


I used the adorable image from the Lil Monster set that was released in the last week. I think this little guy is absolutely adorable!! I cut off the balloon he was holding , and I love it, he looks like he is giving the "thumbs up" sign.

I used a lovely star stitch on my sewing machine for some detail down the side of the card, added some lovely black ribbon and the blingy gems are also from Annabelle Stamps.

I hope you will play along with us, once you have created your card link it at the Annabelle Blog. While you are about it, why not visit all the other Annabelle DT girls' blogs (their links are in my side-bar), to see their gorgeous Black & White creations!!

(While you are here, scroll down to my previous post to see another card I created using one of our newly released Annabelle Sets, it really is a cutey!)
