I won something........ yeah!

I don't enter many challenges, as I make my cards first and then look for challenges but can never find one to suit the card I had just finished. Over on Paper Craft Planet in the "Anything Goes Discussion Bord" they have a monthly challenge and each month I say "I must enter this challenge" but for whatever reason I never do.  Last month they had a Black and White Card challenge and the day before the cut off point I got a chance to make a card and entered it, then to my great surprise I won the challenge.  I could not believe it, as I have never won a challenge like it before, I was so excited. Here is the finished card.

I mounted a Pink Petticoat download backing paper onto some black metallic card stock. The backing paper was looking a little "flat" so I went over the "doodles" with some Sukara Glaze just lift it a little. The image was a freebie from Create with Tlc I printed it onto photo paper and cut it along its black border than mounted it onto white linen effect card. I added a black organza ribbon before mounting the image at an angle onto the card.

Cardstock: DCWV - Hippie Chic
White Cardstock - stash
Backing Paper: Pink Petticoat - Doodleicious Rainbow 2
Image: Create with Tlc.
Ribbon: Anita's everyday ribbon
Colouring Medium: Sukara Glaze

Hope you like,
