Happy Birthday !

Good Evening Everyone, 

How are we all today?

Today I have for you a card that I made for my Hubby for his birthday last weekend. 

I went for something different for me, I went for a no image card, boy was that hard. 

The card is an 8x8 card blank and matted and layered using black and white card stock, the backing paper is cut down from a 12x12 scrapbook page. The centre panel is again a white black mat with a white mat that I scored into squares using my score board. I used strip of black card in the centre and used a thin white ribbon to create some texture to the card. The main part of the card is cut using spellbinders, and then I cut little flags out using the same backing paper as the main layer. I used a sentiment stamp from Popcorn bear.  To finish the card I added four black pearls to each corner. 

I matted and layered the inside of the card using black card stock and the sentiment was printed onto white card stock, the insert was finished with a stamp of a piece of cake in the bottom corner, which you can just see peeking out in the corner.. I meant to take a photo of the inside but before I did I wrote my card out and didn't want to share what I had wrote to him.. oops. 

The challenges I am entering this into are:-

Brown Sugar Challenge - #77 - Anything Goes - 24/01
Creative Fingers Challenge -  # 20 Anything Goes - 24/01
Fussy and Fancy Challenge- #120 Monochromatic - 24/01
Sister Act Card Challenge - #40 Anything Goes - 24/01

Well that is it for me, I hope you like the card like I said something different for me as normally all my cards are stamped and have images on them.

A no image card relies heavily on good design and you rocked this one. The contrast, texture, and choice of papers all work beautifully to create a very striking card. Thanks for Joining our Anything Goes/Ribbons and Pearls challenge at Craftitude this fortnight. I hope we see you again soon.
