Allsorts Challenge - Black and White Plus One!

Good Morning Everyone,

This is a short post this morning as I am popping over to Peterborough for my first joint show with Joanna at 4pm!  House Mouse Saturday no less!  Really loving these stamps and, of course, the promarkers which I am quite new to.  It is really difficult to pull yourself away from these when you get stuck in!

Anyway the card that I have submitted to the challege this week is a medallion.  As you see from the title it needed to be Black and White plus one - my plus one (if you can see it) is the mirri card which has just lifted it a little. The medallion that I used is a Creative Expression design which is quite contemporary and can be used for Christmas or a special birthday and using different colours to suit the occasion.  I have also used the Swiss dots embossing folder to create another layer.  I hope that you like my idea but please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge there are, as always, some gorgeous cards to view and why not have a go at the challenge - it is great fun!

Must fly now - cant be late for the show - I will post again tomorrow to show you the card that I will be demonstrating this afternoon. 

Bye for now
