Magnolia Down Under Challenges #46 - Black, White or Cream + one other

Hello! It's time for another fantastic challenge over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges! This time we have a colour challenge for you - Black, White or Cream PLUS one other colour!

I have used two Magnolia Stamps on my card, Shopping Tilda and the Eiffel Tower, both are from 2008. I let the gorgeous yellow rose dictate the beautiful golden yellow to compliment the black and white DP. I have also used a lace border punch to add the frame to the Eiffel Tower.



Its a little hard to tell from the photo, but I have sponged some grey clouds in the background and then added the yellow sun rays across the skyline. I was lucky enough to go to Paris a few years ago - and it was such grey gloomy weather! So my card reminds me of the beautiful city, with the grey autumn sky with the sun trying to peak through.

I have used some gloss on Tilda's wings and handbag. And there is a little silver handbag charm in the corner.




And lets not forget the inside! There is a tiny silver shoe charm hanging from the yellow ribbon inside the card. Perhaps Tilda was shoe shopping?




I hope you like my card. I really enjoyed creating this one! Don't forget, you have until Saturday midday (AEST) to enter this great challenge.
