Movember Thanks!

Sunday, 3 November 2013

Hey everyone!
I hope you're all well?  I feel like I have a hangover today, I was at a party last night, but I wasn't drinking, it could be something to do with the fact that it was 7am before I got home from it though!  It was a good night!
I was at a pub quiz on Friday night too (the reason why I wasn't drinking last night - I can't do 2 nights in a row, I'm getting too old for that!).  Me and a few of the boys from work entered a team and we were so surprised to finish in 3rd place!  Especially saying as there were more than 3 teams entered in the quiz!  We're smarter than the average bear!  Lol!

But back to business and we have a new challenge today from the Pink Team at Eclectic Ellapu and it was the lovely Elaine's turn to host and the theme she has chosen is...

Black & White!

Fab theme!  I seem to using that theme a lot lately!

Here's my card for you, celebrating the fact that we are now in Movember!

The image is a stamp that I bought in Paperchase in the House Of Fraser in Belfast, I love looking through all their bits and pieces, I don't usually buy much though!  I stamped the moustache with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then stamped a Waltzing Mouse sentiment from the Fancy Phrases set with the same ink.

The papers are all from Pink Petticoat and are all in Jet Black.  I mounted on plain black card and I used a Viva Pearl pen in anthracite to anchor the corners of each layer.

The inside uses the same papers and layout.  I didn't add the pearl pen to the inside as I find it sticks even after it has dried.

So that's my card, pop over to Eclectic Ellapu to check out the rest of the DT's fab inspiration!

LOVE it! You have suceeded in making the black and white theme incredibly "colorful"!! I love the papers you chose to combine and the layout provides all this movement. The simple addition of the Pearl Pen anchoring the corners is a perfect final touch in my opinion. Beautifully done Sheena! Thank you for playing “Anything Goes” at our house!

Oh Sheena - this is such a smart and striking card that so stresses the importance of 'Movember'. For myself, it serves as a reminder that I need to contact my nephew who grew a tash last year in support of Movember - hope he's doing so this year. Love, Ingrid xx
