Black and white party

Howdy doody everyone and look at all my followers.
I am feeling really popular now LOL
Well, yet again it is cold and raining.
I have so many dandelions in my garden.
They look very pretty and are certainly bringing in the bumble bees which we need.
Would be nice if it dried out enough to be able to cut the grass though.
Not that the hubster can do it at the moment.
The silly goose has sprained his ankle.
Men really do not make very good patients ROFL

Today I have a card following a sketch at A Die for a sketch, They are also having a DT call so wish me luck.
The dies I have used are by Marianne Designs Double Frame LR0141, and butterflies, Spellbinders Circles and Whimsy Stamps Banner Pennants.
The black and silver glitter card is recycled from a pack of make up brushes I received at Christmas.
It was so pretty I couldn't bear to throw it away.
I threaded black ribbon through the pennant dies layered up some glitter flowers I bought from Poundland and curled the edges to give more dimension to them.
Added some black and whit polka ribbon, added a Marianne Butterfly I painted silver and added some silver beads to the body.
The stamp is from a set called Cookie by Helz Cuppleditched.
The stamp, Frame die and banners have been edged and coloured in using a black Pan pastel.
Added some handmade ribbons and voila.
Thank you for looking :)

  2. A poorly man in the house Julie is never idyllic, hope he soon get up and about again. Perhaps by then the rain will have stopped so the grass can be cut.

    We had a thunder storm just before dawn, sun mid morning and then snow and it's still sitting, what's all that about in May ?

    Nearly forgot to say great card, black and white always looks so smart.
