Black, White & a Smidge of Colour at LIM

Just a quick post from me as I’m squeezing this card in for this weeks LIM challenge. I actually made it last night but this is the first chance I have had to blog all day as I have had my parents helping me with my crazy nesting urges….the mind is willing but with just over a week until Baby Bumps due date sadly the body is not so willing!

Anyway enough waffle the challenge theme this week is a colour one and is black white and just a smidge of another colour. I needed to make an engagement card so here is my black, white and purple creation…

The ‘Congratulations You’re’ was printed onto a panel of white card and stuck onto the base card using foam tape. The ‘Engaged’ was cut from black card using MFT Die-namic ‘By the Letter’ dies and layered onto a strip of purple card edged with a MS half daisy border punch. This was then stuck to the white panel using foam pads. The leaves are CC Designs Leaf Die and the flowers are my newest dies, MFT Die-Namic Mini Royal Roses. I cut the larger of the flowers in purple and the smaller of the flowers in black and then carefully rolled them together to create a two tone effect, a bit of an experiment but I think it looks quite effective. Finally some medium pearls as the flower centres.

Hope you like!
