Don't look for the white specs!

Hi all,

Another quickie from me tonight, a card for three challenges, but I have to tell you I nearly gave up on this one - it was the black card base that did it!!

CAS-ual Fridays - CFC62 - Black Card Base
Dynamic Duos - #12 - Black Tie with Poppy Parade and Punches
Addicted to Stamps - Clean & Simple Challenge #1




Black card base, Stampin Up border punch, SU DP & Heart Punch (overstamped and clear embossed), SU sentiment white embossed and three tiny buttons.

Please don't look at the white specs - I did not do the anti static thing cause by this time I'd had enough - also I think the sentiment is a bit squished at the bottom because I decided to add it after I'd stuck everything else down! Oh well, you win some, you lose some!

Off now for a chocolate fix - I think I deserve one!

Bye for now
Suze xx

Fab colour combo! I know exactly what you mean about the black card base... when I saw this week's challenge, I thought it would be easy but I'm all out of ideas!

You protest too much, Suze, your card is delightful! I love, love the layout!

I thought at first that your title meant white spectacles, you know, eyeglasses! I think maybe I need mine checked!

Your pretty red heart really pops off the black! Thanks for playing along with us at Dynamic Duos!

Love the colour combination, love the composition, love the heart and I don't agree with any of your moans about squished sentiments or non use of anti static thingies!! It's elegant and so effective - yet again.

I cannot even see any white specks so there is no need to worry.
It is dramatic and contemporary and stunning.

Don't think the sentiment is squished at all and think you more than deserve a choccy as this is well worth all that effort - gorgeous!!! x
