You may think that this title is a bit strange - well Brenda is hosting Moving Along with the Times this week, and the Theme is BB in line with her initials. So that could be any 2 x different B's you choose - button, bow, bling, blue, brad, butterfly, bird etc. So my card represents some B's - Black, Bling from the pearls and sparkly black stones and the gold thread on the embroidered lace. And also a black feather. I had promised myself I was not going to use this stamp until I went for a crafty day tomorrow with my friend Anne. However, I was still trying to decide what to do quite late on, and then remembered a beautiful card I had seen on the blog of my friend Vicky, and I have cased her ideas to some extent.
I was supposed to be following the sketch from A Spoonful of Sugar, but when looking at the placement of the image I dropped it on to the card - - it has very sticky foam tape on the back, and I could not lift it without a lot of damage, so the scalloped circle that is supposed to partly show is now hidden underneath the main image.
For this card I have used GCD Paris nights papers - just love these. I have stamped with archival ink on to a piece of cream card that has a slight gold shimmer to it - just to add to the bling - not that it shows in the photograph. I have embellished with a black feather and a cream feather, some embroidered lace, and a lovely creamy Prima flower.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
