Black and White

Black and White
Just popping in to share a card that I made for colleague.
The brief was to create a card in black and white, with a little french influence if I can 
and that the person loves butterflies.

Aaargh!!! I don't have any french stamps!!!
(but will get that sorted out in the future lol)

I'm not sure if it is very french, but she was more than happy
with the outcome...phewwww.

I have bounced off an idea that I had earlier this year, which you can find here,
and I think it looks heaps better! It uses my all time favourite lady stamp.
I think she is a little vintage and sooo very classy! 
I have used her for both contemporary and vintage cards,
 and not many stamps can do that.

I really like how this turned out,
looks like some of my friends might be getting similar ones, ssshhhh


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges...

So beautiful Dot, really stunning, that stamp is something else. I love how you put it all together and you don't get any more monochrome than black and white!
