It's Black & White at Isabella Sketchbook

Happy Wednesday folks... not only is it midweek, but it's another challenge at Isabella Sketchbook.  This time we'd like you to make a black and white card, using one of Isabella's images. Only the image itself may have colour.  Visit Isabella's challenge blog to view the rest of the DT's cards, you are going to be blown away.  These ladies are seriously talented. I hope you will be inspired to join us today...

I loved this black and white gingham when I set eyes on it. It was actually wrapping paper, quite a thickish one though, so worked perfectly for this card. The sentiment is computer generated. Embellies are black, white and pink pearls; a gingham ribbon with white organza ribbon overlay. My trademark hatpin with white and pink pearls. The butterfly was punched out using my new MS butterfly punch. Added some Stickles glue for sparkle.

A close up pic focussing on the butterfly and the glaze on those gorgeous hearts.  I loved this image when I saw it in Isabella's shop and just had to have it!

Hope to see you at Isabella's.  2 digistamps to be won and the I Won badge to display on your blog, should you win.  Good luck!    Take care, hugs Sharon
