Spread your wings ....

It's time for a new challenge at Craftng for all Seasons and the theme for the next fortnight is Monochrome.

I have made a card using a card kit from Paper Creator's Crafts called Butterfly.


I embossed the black base panel with a Die'sire Embossalicious embossing folder and added some black card stock and white card stock to mat all of the layers.


The image is a Jumbled Pyramage topper, these are quite easy to layer up - I always do a 'dry run' before I add sticky pads or glue


I decorated the inside of my card with an insert from the card kit and decorated a box to put my card in.


Our sponsor this fortnight is:


Fabulous sponsor in 2014

and the prize is 3 images from any of the showcased creators
Stitchy Stamps , Scrapper's Delights , Coosty Creations )

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simply Create Too Challenge 68 - Monochromatic Madness
Creative Card Crew Challenge 68 - Embossing (wet or dry)
Sentimental Sundays Challenge 220 - Monochromatic Colours
Fitztown Challenge 49 - Wet or Dry Embossing
