Black, White and one Other Colour

Good morning everyone hope you had a fabulous weekend!  This is a scheduled post (hopefully lol) as I will be coming back from London today.  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and for this challenge we want to see Black, White and One Other Colour.  So predominantly black and white with just s bit of another colour.  I love this combo and think black and white always look stunning.  My first choice is to put red with it but I thought I would do something different. However, when I looked at what I did for this challenge last year I used the same colour combo!! How predictable am I then??


I have used Lexi's Happy Birthday sentiment and DSB Sketchy Flower 3 lightly coloured with Copics.  Dies used are SB Romantic Rectangles and Ribbon Banners, Cheery Lynn Burlap Border.  Papers are Pink Petticoat.  The ink is Versa Colour Orchid and ribbon is from my stash.  Our sponsor this week is:


Please go over to Lexi's Creations and check out what the rest of the DT have done! You have almost two weeks to enter the challenge we would love to have you join us!

Thanks for looking today, take care xx
