Black and White and Read All Over

I discovered a new to me challenge site called Electic Ellapu through a blogging friend, Nicola, who just joined their design team!  Nicola has a beautiful blog that you should check out if you have not yet done so. The theme at Electic Ellapu this week is Black and White and Read All Over.  I decided to stamp the background of my card repeatedly with a text image from the Artistic Outpost plate called Birds of A Feather.  The sentiment and images are also by AO and come from the Bluebird plate. To complete my card, I added black lace and paper doily, and white seam binding tied into a bow and a white feather.  I'll also be entering my card at the AO January Referral Program.  Thanks for dropping by my blog today!  Best wishes, Yvonne

Yvonne!!! You are such a sweetheart - thank-you so much!

Very sincerely, I love your card. I havn't seen that text stamp before - both stamp sets you have used look wonderful. I found just black and white quite harsh to work with but you have achieved a beautiful softness with your card through the gentle image and lovely use of lace and doiley. The very narrow matting works really well too. An absolute beauty of a card Yvonne.

Sleep well my friend. Nicola x
