Let's Go Black at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
This is a scheduled post as when the challenge goes live my daughter will be in the middle of getting her gown on ready to graduate.  A very exciting day and proud moment for us all.  Promise to post some piccies when we get home tomorrow.

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this challenge is:
Use the colour black somewhere on your creation

We have three fab sponsors for this challenge:
StampArt Design - prize of 5 digi images to the winner
Delicious Doodles - prize of 4 digi images to the winner
Di's Digi Downloads - prize tba

I chose this gorgeous image from StampArt Design called Christmas Candle.  The image can be found here.

I used one of my stepper card blanks for this card.  The paper is from Papermania and just love the black and white.  The image was cut out using one of my dies and mounted onto the centre panel.  I used spellbinders poinsettia dies to cut the flowers using mirror card.  Really nice and shiny.  I also used an ivy corner die that I have for behind the flowers.  A little bow and a couple of gems finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.  For more fab inspiration just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.
