CCSR Colour challenge

Well, I've had a really frustrating day trying to sort out problems with things I sold on eBay!!! I've managed to make one card though!! Was also going to make my husband's birthday card tonight and then he went and came home from work early - oops!! I've lots of visitors arriving tomorrow and his birthday is Sunday, so I'm not quite sure how that is going to work out!!!

Anyway, here is the card I made today. It is for two of Clare Curd's challenges - the pink & black colour challenge over on Stampin' Chic and her sketch challenge on the DoCrafts website.

The papers I used were the black and white patterned papers from CCSR Big One paper pack. I cut out the flowers, then coloured them with pink chalk (the dry sort), touched up the edges with pink fluid chalk, sprayed it all with hairspray and then added Anita's Clear Gloss. I was quite pleased with the finished result!! The card is actually a lot pinker than it looks in the photo, but you get the general idea!!
The sentiment is also cut from some of the Big One papers.

The circle shapes were cut with my xCut shape cutter.

Brads & black adhesive stones - Papermania

Cardstock - Craft Central in Inverness (was going to make the whole card blank from this but it was a bit flimsy so stuck it on a white blank!!)

Ribbon - from stash.

Thanks for looking everyone!!! Have a good weekend - I hope to be back at the begining of next week!!
