Black Velvet

I'm not feeling too well and cant sleep, so I thought I'd take my mind off things and do some crafting.

I made this card with three challenges in mind,

First, the colours from ColourQ, ( I added yellow),

the sketch is from Fab Friday,

and lastly, Less is More with a theme of


However, I think I've overdone it a little!!.

Supplies :
All Stampin' Up unless stated otherwise
Card = Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, and white base FMS
Stamps = Fabulous Florets, Papillon Potpourri, and Simply Sketched
Inks = Black and Crushed Curry
Tools = Big Shot, Dots EF, Nestabilities, and Bitty Butterfly Punch
Extras = Black Felt and Ribbon

Before I go back to bed (perhaps I should have stayed there!), I'm going to make another one now, and this time I MUST try to keep it CAS.

Thanks for dropping by
