365 Cards - Day 52 and Colour Create week 12

Today's card is being entered for 2 challenges.

Firstly it is day 52 on 365 Cards and the challenge is Tuesday's Trio.

You need to use 3 things on your card - Brad, Blossom and Circle.

The brad is in the centre of my flower, the blossom is obvious and the circle is the fact I have used Polka Dots.

The second challenge I am entering this for is the one at Colour Create week 12, their theme is to make a card using Black, Pink and White with the added option of Polka Dots.

So here is my card



I used a white card base and created a cross using some black and white ribbon.

In each quarter I added a piece of PP which is a free sample on Papertrey Ink, each time they produce a new set of papers they give you a sample sheet you can print out, the paper is from Raspberry Fizz and Black and White basics, this is the closest I will get to owning anything from their website, Boo Hoo!!

I then took a large Black and a White bloom and cut them in half, added them to the card and layered a White Doodlebug spotted flower, another I have coloured to try and match the Raspberry fiz paper and finished with a decorative brad.

Hope you like it
