Take Two with Scrapbook Sisters.

The challenge this week at Scrapbook Sisters is, "Only Two colours" Now, for my DT card I've used a bit of artistic licence. I was asked by a friend to make a card  for her husbands 40th,his favourite colours being black and white, now everyone knows that if you mix black and white together,they make grey right? and don't you think that silver is just shiny grey? well I'm hoping you do, lol!

So I stamped my black bazil with a silver "frank" stamp,it's by forever friends and actually says first class friend but I managed to avoid the friend bit when I inked it,(guess what her husband's profession is?) I cut the numbers and stars out using my Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook. the flourishes were cut using a revolution die. I embossed my black numbers using a star folder.

Husband is from the same set of F.F. set. I just used foam pads to give dimension to the embellishments and stickles was requested which I added to the shadowing of the numbers.

I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
Cards Und More 43, Monochrome,
CAC, Embossing,
CCC172, Don't Look at the light,
MIM67, Anything goes,
Penny Black And More December,Happy Birthday,

Thanks for stopping by,
