Black, green and white at the Play Date Cafe

Hi all

Thanks for all your lovely messages and emails about Zaids accident. He is doing much better now after having his wrist in plaster. The police came to see us and let us know that the driver of the van which knocked him over was driving his companies van but he doesn't have a license grrr!!! He will be getting prosecuted for driving without a license, no insurance and driving without due care and attention (doesn't matter that he knocked anyone over though and caused them injury as that won't come into it) - that's the messed up thing about the justice system though!

Anyway, I made this card last week for the Play Date Cafes current challenge which is a Colour Splash of Black & White with a hint of colour and this week's colour is Green. This weeks colour splash was set by the lovely and super talented Sarah Anderson who I had the pleasure of meeting last week when she had me as a willing student in her Journalling Workshop.

There is another gorgeous inspiration photo this week:



Here is my take on the colour splash:



The background paper is made using a flower stamp which was free with the Craft Stamper magazine. The dress and dummy stamp is from my recent candy win from Cath over at Inky Fingers so I don't know the make, it was paper pieced. Lace and ric rac from my stash.

**Editted to add the stamp is from Time to Stamp, now owned by I Brake for Stamps (thans for the info Cath ;-)

  4. Very nice, Sarah. I like the idea of paper piecing the dress - it's from Time to Stamp, btw, now owned by I Brake for Stamps. That lace looks good, too!

Now, onto your beautiful card!Loving that dress images and it looks so striking with the splash of green against the white and black combo....another corker Hun..xx warmest wishes Anita..xxx
