Good Morning Everyone,

I don't seem to be posting much lately do I?  Not sure why but I just seem to be able to manage my DT cards and that's about it at the moment.

Anyway, it's time for another challenge at As You Like It and the theme this fortnight is to show us a project using black and white plus one other colour, (I think skin's allowed as an extra).

I knew I wanted to go with my fave colour of purple as the extra, but must say it was a bit of a conundrum for me as to what sort of card to make.  In the end I used one of my new house mouse stamps called Painted Poppies, which I coloured with copics.   I couldn't  use any other colours so I left the grass and leaves uncoloured for the little mouse to paint when he'd finished the flowers!

The papers have been cut out with stitched dies and I've added some stitched ribbon and black enamel dots as embellishments.
