What's black and white and read all over?

A newspaper!!! Oh, OK, it was a bit lame wasn't it.
It was a daft way of introducing you to my card for Mercy's latest sketch challenge, MTSC38.



This card is actually covering two challenges.
It is also for Digital Ink Co's very first blog challenge.
The gorgeous poppy, (I LOVE poppies), is free on the blog for you to use in creating your project. How wonderful is THAT!

I've wanted to do a black/white/red card for ages and finally did it.

There's nothing complicated about the card.
I followed Mercy's gorgeous sketch and used Digital Ink Co's fabulous poppy, coloured with Copics.
Black and white card and a panel embossed with the Cuttlebug leaves folder.
A dash of white ribbon with black spots and a knot of black ribbon tied round it.
Very suave! LOL

Hope you like it as much as I do. Please leave me a comment, I luv 'em! Viv xx

Oh wow Viv, what a fantastic card...I have always been a sucker for the colors black white and red together...I was wondering if you wouldn't mind if we displayed your card in our store gallery? If that is okay with you, could you email me at silkonglass@gmail.com thank you for joining in on the fun
