Just A Note …

Hello friends,

Sharing with you today my guest designer card for the Crafty Boots Challenge blog. What a wonderful opportunity to be featured on such a Guest DT Badgelovely challenge blog – thanks so much Dionne and the Crafty Boots design team for inviting me. The theme of the current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is ‘Black and White’. Your project can be a card, an altered box, a handmade gift, an album, in fact anything you like just as long as it has a colour combo of black and white.

I decided to create a vintage/shabby themed card with layers of black and white designer paper and a gramophone die cut. To frame the gramophone I used a Spellbinders die “Regal Frame” – for me the old vintage and intricate pattern complimented the paper and gramophone so well. To complete the card I added a JustRite sentiment, paper roses and bows

Challenges entered:

    Swart en wit kan maklike eentonig raak, maar jy het dit reggekry om dit interressant te maak met die verskillende teksture en patroon kombinasies!
    n Meesterstuk!

    O, Amelia, ek is mal oor musiek, ek is mal oor wit en swart saam en ek is mal oor jou lieflike kaartjie!!!! Pragtig gedoen!!!! Ek hou daarvan dat jy ‘n swart basis gebruik het en wie is dan nou nie mal oor polka dots nie, ne!!!!??? Die die-cut raam en die papier met die antieke skrif is albei verskriklik mooi!!!! En dan die pragtige ou grammefoon, die bannier met die gepaste sentiment, die pragtige klein rosies – alles so perfek saamgesit om ‘n meesterstuk te maak!!!!! ‘n Wonderlike kaartjie, Amelia en ‘n ware pronkstuk vir daai GD spot!!!!! Ek is nie verbaas dat hulle jou genader het nie – baie geluk!!!!!!
    Groete en ‘n heerlike Dinsdag vir jou!!!!
