Bellarific Friday Challenge

This week over at the Stampingbella 'Bellarific Friday' challenge there is a sketch for inspiration.This card soooo did not turn out the way it was meant to but in the end I had a bit of a hissy fit and left it as it was ;-)
So, this was the sketch:
sketch-7-april-10 copy
At least I got to use my new lush ribbon :-) The stamp is Uptown girl Charlie sits by the Chimney and the papers are 'Fresh Raspberries' from Raspberry Road.
I was going for black and white to go with some papers that, once again, I KNEW were in my crafty stash. Oh man, did I throw a hissy when they weren't to be found. I have learned my lesson this week - find papers BEFORE colouring begins!

The scones are no more and I have started the diet again with a new sense of purpose. In part this has been helped by the fact that my husband is also on a diet following his health check ;-) 

Sending hugs xx

  5. Oh my, she is stunning hun - love the black and white with the bright splash of red. So glad it didn't turn out how you wanted, this version is perfect sweetie! Gorgeous shading on that super image. Hugs xx

  6. It may not have been as imagined in your head but it's absolutely gorgeous so I'd chalk that up as a win!
    I love the elegance of the black and white but those little pops of red really add a lovely extra detail :-) In fact, you may notice a similarity colour-wise with a card I am going to be posting over the weekend...great minds think alike?!

    I hope you ave a lovely weekend :-)

    Big hugs, Kat xx

  14. Black, white, gray, and red ROCKS! I saw the word "opulent' in the comment above--great word to describe this card.

    Anyway, I've had that same hissy fit for the same reason. You think we'd learn our lesson but I bet we both do it again.


I love it when you leave a message. It makes my day :)
