It'll be all white on the night

Hi folks, I can't believe I haven't managed a single post all week, its been another hectic week at work and I don't seem to have had a minute. Anyway its time for a new challenge over at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog and I've got to say this one was a real challenge for me as our theme is 'It'll be all white on the night' so we just want to see colour on the main image only. I've used Crafty Ann's beautiful Morning Glory digi stamp (you can find it here in Crafty Ann's Digi Shop)

I've kept the card fairly simple, coloured the image with promarkers, cut with a nestie and inked around the edge with victorian velvet distress ink and matted it on another nestie inked with shabby shutters distress ink.

I've dusted off one of my embossing folders for the background and added some faux pearls from my stash. The gorgeous ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons  and to finish off i've added a couple of beaded pins made with head pins, crystals and pearls from my jewellery making stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
(my line is ribbon, glitter/shine - my pins and flowers)
Ooh La La: No patterned paper
The Paper Shelter: die cuts and punches
Papertake Weekly: dies to die for
Passion for Promarkers: No patterned paper
Scrapbook Sisters: flower, ribbon and gem
Sweet Stamps: White on white

I love Fridays and when i type my post for Crafty Ann's challenge it always reminds me that the weekend is nearly here and its a bank holiday this weekend so an extra day off work too :-)
