Black on black

Delicious doodles 45: black-on-black challenge prompted me to make this card. I used a sparkly black card blank on to which I used a piece of Basic Grey Scarlet's letter 'fre the well' paper - I put various strips of Tim Holtz tissue tape on to this and some Craftime lace rub ons. I layered the Poundland felt flowers with buttons on to the larger paper flowers and added a birthday sentiment. As I've used Basic Grey paper this is for Basic Grey 98: flowers.

This is also for:

Ooh la la: ebony and ivory
Penny's 136: use black somewhere
Card and scrap 58: use lace or tape
Alphabet: L for lace
Catered crop: button up
Eclectic ellapu: flowers
Fairies 9: flowers, summer
Inspiration avenue: birthdays
Seize the birthday: anything goes birthday celebration
Emerald faerie garden 45: happy birthday
Oozak 18: anything goes with texture
Hiding in my craft room 107: freestyle
Cards and scrap 176: everything must
Let's craft and create 74: anything goes
Crafting by designs: anything goes
DL.ART July: anything goes
Sister act 16: anything goes
