It's all the B's at Moving Along with the Times!

Hi everybody

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:

Clear it out Tuesday - Ribbon/Trim
Creative Craft Challenge - Distresed/Vintage - I think mine is 'vintage'
Ladybug Craft - Black/white + one other - I have gold in my ribbon
Use it Tuesday - Bling
House of Gilli - Black and one other colour
Kaboodle Doodle - Lots of layers
Make It Monday  - Anything goes
OOh La La Creations - Tres Chic
Divas by Design - Anything goes

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
