l'll have a pint please!!

Hello Everyone,

Well, another week another Challenge so this weeks Challenge is for  
Monochrome Colour challenge
l have used Simply Black & White colours for the Challenge 
Using plain Black and White card, the image used is from a CD with Monochrome images and as l have another brother with a birthday coming up in July thought a good pint image would make a nice card, l cut out the image twice and layered it giving it that 3D look, also used some Black Stickles glitter to put on the outline and on the buddles which do stand out but not sure if the effect is as good on the picture, Black peel off round the edge and Black and White Card Candy which l adore.

Hope you like this Challenge card and if so please can you leave your comments, l read all my comments and am most grateful for any you do leave.
Many thanks for looking Sandra.

  20. Hi Sandra I've been visiting your blog since you commented on mine (Thank You) but until today blogger would not allow me to comment or follow you. Yahoo! I am enjoying your blog. Your little Tayla Rae is adorable and what a sweet name. Your card is fantastic. Guy cards are so difficult. I am sure your brother will love it.
