Put your sunglasses on.......

........because this is a loud one!

Colour Create set the colour combo of black and neon green. Not at all my usual but I gave it a try. Not sure I'll be trying it again mind! Simon Says Stamp said use 2 papers, 1 image and 3 embellishments so I did that too. Finally the fab sketch was provided by Cindy Haffner at Crazy 4 Challenges.

I used Coredinations Black Magic paper which is black on one side and green on the other. I made my 2 papers by embossing and sanding back to reveal the green. The stamped image is from a new set by Inkadinkado and there are five others waiting to be used. the ribbon has come out very yellow for some reason, it's not it's green and matches the flowers which I got from Hobbycraft.

If you were paying attention earlier I'd said I was cuddling Blake all afternoon as he was a lot grizzly. Well he's fast off now after what we shall only ever refer to as 'nappy gate'. Enough said!

So I'm going to post another card I made last night next.
