Finally a card

Hi all, Hope you all have a fantastic New Year, can't believe a month has gone by since posting a card, we had a fantastic time with our visitors, quite a house full, forgot how full on it can be. House is cleaned, paperwork mostly done, so had time to play last night, unfortunately, my mojo seems to have disappeared! Won't tell you how long this card took and still not happy! Just seems to lack something! So wanted to enter this weeks Anya Ink Challenge as my friend is this weeks Guest Designer Emma and Fran is Guest Designer for the month, so Congratulations girls what a fantastic way to start the New Year!
Challenge to use Black and White and one colour of choice, so just had to choose PURPLE! Secondly was SG2 Challenges to use this sketch and so lucky just managed to squeeze it into a few more listed below:


Firstly I coloured in my image, which I stamped off the lovely Debbie P, used special effects and glitter as shown. Then I used my new Zing! Embossing Powder - Lavender to create the hearts on the background, then using CM heart patterns to create the layered heart, sponging the white heart and using my fave purple stickles, then used one of my favourate brads - purple hearts, sadly the last one so must source some more. Then for the first time I used my Kasiercraft Rhinestones. Cardstock all Stampin Up Elegant Eggplant, Lavender Lace, Basic Black and Whisper White.

Anya Ink Challenge - Black and White plus one
Crafty Creations Challenge #49, - Black and White with a Splash of Colour
The Corosive Challenge #45 - Use two of your favourate things
Hope too get round and visit some of you soon, so had blog withdrawal systems, can't wait to see what you have all been up to. Must go busy weekend ahead.
Thanks for looking, happy crafting, take care, AnnetteX:)
