Ten minute make

This card was so easy it feels like I cheated, it came together in moments:).  I'm really getting into my clean & simple cards, but for me they involve lots of agonising, and usually several rejects before I am happy.  Today, I saw that Shopping Our Stash have a black white and one other colour challenge and remembered some stash that has been sitting unloved for ages and put it to use with Less is More's sketch...

Craftwork Cards had a sale earlier this year which included mystery boxes or goody bags, whichever it was I am a sucker for it lol!  But have I used my stash?  Have I heck, it's still sitting on the desk where it landed.  Included was a set of flowers printed on to pearlised white card, saying that they just needed colouring.  Well if you look there's not a lot needs colouring either!  I love black, white and red so I coloured the flower with my Copics, matted it twice and added some ribbon and a gem.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, love the font.  Ten minutes, card finished!

My card is for the following challenges:
Less is More - sketch
Shopping Our Stash - black, white and one other colour
Allsorts Challenge - clean & simple
Simon Says - anything goes
Celebrate the Occasion - must use ribbon

    I bought those sentiments from PP, aren't they FAB.
    I just used a big batch of them punched and matted white on white, they look so classy!

    Your card is super, striking colours

    Thank you

  7. That flower above the text looks great Anne and that's a terrific treatment for the sentiment... it almost looks as though it's fighting for precedence over the image.
    Thanks so much
