The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is Going Black and White

but only for this week :)  

Good morning to you all in the land of blog and welcome to the weekend and don't we all deserve a lovely weekend, relaxing and with of course some lovely sunshine.
Today brings the next challenge at the

The challenge this week has been set by our lovely talented Kelly

she chose the theme of 


this sort of stumped me for a little while and then all in a flurry it came to me, so this is what I created for my design team inspirational piece this week.
This is another 12 x 10 inch around the page punched card.  These measurements allow you to fold the card and for it to perfectly match up back to front.
The white card base with the MS daisy punched edge, with a layer of black card on top of this.  Now the paper on top with the daisy flowers on is from the Hobby House and is actually from a wedding stack, so sorry cannot remember the name.  At the centre of each daisy is a white pearl, these pearls are from the Hobby House, however the black ones around the perimeter of the card, are from Grimsby Crafts.  The ribbon and butterfly from stash. The ribbon has been wrapped around the black and white layer and then a double bow has been tied, I adore these double bows.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the Hobby House.  Liquid pearls in opal have been added down the peel off 3D butterflies centre. The inside of the card has been created to match as always.

Just a little close up from another angle so you can see the depth on the card, oops another box required and surprisingly enough not a copic used anywhere on this card.

Don't forget to  hop over to the challenge blog to check out my fabulous team mates inspirational pieces.
