Black & White

Two cards to show this week.  The first is a Birthday card for a friend - she loves Scottie dogs and she has a white one so I wanted to do a card with one. I went for the black and white theme because these are her favourite colours but I added a few red flowers to give it a little colour and to try and make it more feminine.

The Scottie dog is a Cameo file and the black lattice is my first attempt at making a lattice pattern on the Cameo. The flowers were cut using the Sizziz Flowers 3D die.


I would like to enter this card into Challenges 4 Everybody challenge #7 - Anything goes


My second card is for a friend who has just moved house and I got my inspiration from a gorgeous card listed on Docrafts by Candy and I would like to thank her very much for giving me permission to use her design. If you would like see Candy's beautiful card here is the link: Candy's Design

For my version of the card I used a Cameo image of a chandelier and attached small gems. I used the tied together embossing folder for the background and highlighted it using liquid pearls. The bow is also a Cameo image because I am absolutely hopeless at tying bows with ribbon. Here is the card:
