Day 9 - A little black number.


Good morning everyone - Friday already and today we have play day at the shop! 
A great day ahead but first my inspiration for today.

As the title suggests it is a classy black and white design.  The main focal point is the flower die and then the strips of embossed detail on the bands of matted card stock leads the eye into the middle of the design. The background paper is quite busy I think the mix of the plain colours it works quite well. 
Let me know what your thoughts are on this idea by leaving me a comment.
Don't forget that at the end of the month I will be popping all comments into the hat for a Blog Candy draw.
Hope to see you again,
Until then,
Bye for now


  1. I like this card Jo and the bold flower is perfect for the background you have created.

  5. Hi Jo, this card has given me ideas to make for a relative who doesn't like girly colours. Perfect

  6. Hi Jo, I started creating some black and white cards, using my Owl die that I purchased from you, but I like the way you've added the background as well. I shall definately try to incorporate that idea into some of the cards I'm doing. Thank you for sharing. Sylvia F.
