City Crafters Challenge Week 38

Hi there ... 
Today marks the start of another challenge at City Crafter Challenge and I have to say that last week's entries were so magnificent that it just gets harder and harder to try and pick out winners ... You people are just so talented ... I'm in awe of some of your creations ...
Today our lovely Cheryl is hosting our first challenge of 2011 and this week we are asked to make a card or project using only WHITE plus one accent colour of our choice ... As today is also my wedding anniversary ... I made a card for my husband and went with black as my other colour choice keeping it pretty CAS ...





I stamped a background using black ink onto white card stock and machine stitched  this onto my main card ... then took another piece of white CS and embossed it and used a spellbinders border die to trim the edge ... next I used a Sizzix die to cut out the heart shape and layered this over my stamped piece using foam squares to give some dimension ... added some lace and a computer generated sentiment and a pretty black glittered heart ....






I always worry that my cards might be a bit 'girlie' ... I think he will like the fact that I made this regardless ...
I do hope you can come and play along with us this week ... please go and check out all the DT work too ... our sponsor is Laura Vigliaro  of Laura's Vintage Garden (Etsy) so there is one super duper prize on offer... click on THIS link to see her Etsy goodies ...
