Totally Gorjuss 69 Black & One Other Colour.

Good morning everyone and I'm sure you're all glad it's Saturday. Time for another challenge over at Totally Gorjuss. First of all thanks to everyone who joined us last week for our "Check it out" challenge. You certainly like your checks and we had lots of lovely entries. This week we have another really easy challenge for you. We'd like you to make a card or layout using black and one other colour.

This week we are sponsored by Tando Creative. If you haven't come across them before just click on the link and pop over and have a look. I'm sure you'll like what they have in store.

So here's my card. It's very simple. Not exactly CAS, which I'm into at the moment, but not fancy either and not a lot to it.

I used :-
Image :- Chipboard flower from Tando Creative stamped with a dotty Stampin' Up! stamp.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
DP :- MME.
Bakers Twine :- The Ribbon Girl.
Button, lace ribbons and jewels from stash.

I only used one chipboard flower from a packet of 4 so with a few other bits and pieces you can make an inexpensive card with not too much effort.

I'd like to enter the following challenges :-
Papertake Weekly :- Sketch.
The Pink Elephant :- Buttons, lace and ribbon.

I hope you can find time to enter our challenge this week. Don't forget to pop over to Totally Gorjuss and see what my talented teamies have made to inspire you this week. I'm sure they'd love to hear what you think of their cards. If you've got time to leave me a wee comment I'd love to hear from you too.

Well after work this morning I'm going to a crop at my local craft shop so I'll catch up with you all later.

Enjoy your weekend.
