Dilly Bean Challenge - 31 August 2012

I have decided to blog cards that I made prior to my problems with my hands and not being able to make cards as my blog is looking very un-loved.
This is a card I made using the freebie papers available from Summertime Designs.  She is one clever lady and so generous to us crafters giving away freebies.  I have layered various black-and-white papers, one being a spotty one and one being a striped one.  To add some splash of colour I have used red card.  The image is called "girl and butterflies" and I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with a white gel pen and my Sakura Stardust clear pen.  The card has been finished off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment, flower with button centre (I have coloured the black and red layer of the flower with Promarkers), black-and-white spotty ribbon, twine, double ribbon bow, doily, peel-off corner, faux stitching and black acrylic paint dots.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Joanna Sheen Challenge - Going dotty
Dilly Bean Challenge - Black, white and choice of one other colour - I have chosen black, white and red
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Paper Pretties - Create a square card
My Time to Craft - Black, white and one other colour (black, white and red)
Tuesday Alchemy - Anything goes
Crafts and Me - Add a flower
Papercraft Sar - Something girly
Inky Impressions - Anything goes
