Black with one other colour

Hi everybody

At  Anything Goes  this week we have a colour combo challenge - Black with one other  Colour.  How easy is that - well it should be but getting the colours to look right is sometimes not so easy.

I have used a Sarah Kay image, which was stamped on to a Cheery Lynne die cut, and coloured in Promarkers.  The background paper has been embossed with a M-Bossibilities folder and I have various black and black/white papers behind it.  I have added two lacy bands across the middle done with a punch.  Leaves are die cut, and flowers from stash.

There are some fabulous pieces on work on the challenge blog so please do pop across there, and remember you can get lots of crafting goodies from the Craft Den.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons -  Flowers
For Fun Challenges  - My Favourite Girl
Great Impressions - 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. Hugs,
