Black and white

Hi Everyone, hope you have had sun today, still raining here, that is after the frost had melted by about 11.30am.  I suppose that's why the UK is called a green and pleasant land!  (apart from the flooding that is.)

Had a clear out today of "snippets" a huge recycling paper sack full, I have to admit it looks tidier now, even CD's went that I have had since the 90's, they won't work on my present system, why on earth have I kept hold of them?  It was difficult though as my sciatica is really painful today so had to get off the chair, walk, lay down, then attack the snippets again LOL.

Anyhow on to today's card.  I loved the sketch on Bugaboo so made a couple of cards, I'll show the other one tomorrow.  I decided to do a Black and White card for a change, I do love the effect.  So it had to be akvzebra from Bugaboo.  I used Swiss Dots by Pink Petticoat for the background,  I backed it with black card and used some paper I had years and years ago for the horizontal piece. I don't even remember where it came from. I backed the oval shapes with black card and hand cut them out, then added punched flowers from the floral paper and put Perfect Pearls in the centre of them.


This is the sketch
