Black and white!

Hi There,
I hope you have all enjoyed the snow. We now have the deepest snow here since 1964, according to our council anyway! Its actually so deep my 6 year old cant really go out to play in it because its up to her bottom  in places so wellie boots are just not doing the job!! we are also snowed in and the schools are shut till Monday at least. There goes my Christmas shopping tomorrow and not sure about doing it online because roads and motorways have been closed on and off and we have not even post never mind large lorries with parcels! We are meant to have another 20cms tonight again, I am now getting a bit fed up with it.

So here is my card that i made the other day. The sketch is from the Just Magnolia Challenge. My Tilda was coloured with promarkers. As you can see i decided to try and do her all in "black and white." Had fun messing with all the grey shades, its not exactly how i wanted her to look but was running out of time. The colour scheme came from the Allsorts challenge which is Monochrome. The paper i used, the black one, has lots of lovely flocking on it. This card was hard to get a good photo off, the white just kept bouncing back at the camera. Its not a cheap camera i use, maybe its just me not using it properly. I decided to add Pearl Paper Effects, glitter and gems onto the corners. This fits with the Paper Sundaes challenge of "Adorn Those Corners". The Die Cut Dreams Christmas Clubs challenge is to use Die Cuts and i used plenty on this card with the Nesties and the swirls and flower from my Cricut Machine. The Craft Your Days Away Challenge is to add texture to your card. The flocking on the paper, embossing and lace counts for this. I am also going to play along with Tip Top Tuesday which is anything goes.
