Papertakes Black, White + 1 Challenge
This weeks challenge at Papertakes is to use black, white plus 1 other colour on your card. I dug out one of my old Penny Black xmas stamps and stamped it with black Versafine and embossed it with Crystal Translucent embossing powder. I have added lots of Glamour Dust as well so it really sparkles in real life. (If you click on the pic yo can see all the bling!)
The border punch is from Martha Stewart and I have actually managed to use some of the holographic card which has been lurking in my paper drawers for the past 6/7 years!!! I only used a little piece though!
I am so pleased to be back making cards for Papertakes and I'd like to than Dawny and the girls for letting me take a short break.

Stamp: Penny Black
Tools: Copics, Glamour Dust, Martha Stewart Punch, Gems
