Black, White and Red

It's Mothers Day and I've received two lovely cards from the boys - both made them at school; a large flower that Samuel made with a 'guess who' phrase on each of the petals with the answer under the flower centre (answer is me!) and a little peat pot wrapped in lots of red cellophane from Jacob. I'm hoping the pot will grow - he assures me that there is a seed in it!

So, for my Tiddly Inks card this week which asks for:

Red, White and Black

I've reused some of the red cellophane! I used the second smallest Nesties die and scrunched up different layers, secured with a brad and double sided tape and added it to my card! I've used Promarkers to colour the image plus papers from the Love Love Love download from Funky Hand.

Whilst looking for some black card, I found some random sheets of silver spotty card which I've used to layer the image. Bit of doodling and inking and the card is complete! All the printed card I found in my box of bits - so double recycling for me today!

Happy Birthday too Christy - hope it was a good one!!
