Black White and One Other Colour

Good morning to you all and a big welcome to my latest follower, Flora - so pleased you are here!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme is we want to see your cards that are Black White and One Other Colour.  Remember we are a card only challenge and we are now monthly so you have loads of time to submit your entry!  Here is my card:


I have gone with the Spotlight Technique for my card using one of my most favourite rubber stamps by Penny Black.  The sentiment is also Penny Black stamped directly onto the linen card.  I used Spellbinders Curved Bracket dies to cut the paper and cardstock.  Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circles to cut and mat the images too.  The ribbon and flat back pearl are from my stash and the paper is Pink Petticoat.  Please pop over to the challenge blog here to look at the rest of the DT cards and for more details.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Ladybug Crafts - Something Floral
One Crazy Stamper - Birthday
Cards Galore - Bingo (Birthday, Die Cuts, Ribbon)
Card Crafter's Circle - Dotty For Spots
Crafty Ribbons - Use One or More Circles

Its one of my friend's birthday party tonight so I am looking forward to that.  She is having a huge party in her garden I hope the weather is kind although she does have a marquee up.  Thanks for looking today! Take care xx

This is a gorgeous classy card Susan and the pink just pops out against the black and white. The spotlight technique works so well with this stamped image. Hope you have a good weekend and thanks for all your visits and lovely comments this week.
