Black Magic ….

Good morning all, the challenge over at Lili’s Little Fairies this week is BLACK MAGIC
It was a bit of a tricky one for me, you have to use some black on your card and it’s not a colour I would normally use very much.

I love these little penguins, definitely one of my favourites from this year’s Christmas images. You can get this this either in a stamp or in a Mini Masterpiece sheet

There’s a real mixture of snowflake shapes here, I’ve used a Martha Stewart punch and a Marianne die for the bigger ones. The white one is cut out of glitter card and the yellow one I embossed after cutting. The little ones and the border are a Martha Stewart punch around the page set

Looking at the card on here now I don't like that bow at all so I think I'll take that off and maybe add another snowflake or 2! I do lay things out to make sure I like them before I stick but I nearly always then remove something and end up tearing the paper or even ruining the whole card because I'm not happy with one little bit of it. :o(

Thanks for stopping by and make you pop back because I’ll have some candy shortly

Have a lovely day
