Made For A Competition~
Just thought I would share with you a card I have made for the craft show Competition at Port Sunlight.
Port Sunlight is a lovely village near Liverpool, built by William Hesketh Lever for his Sunlight soap factory workers in 1888.
Each year it holds an Autumn Stamp Festival and it's the largest specialist for rubber stamps in the North West.
It is about 3 hours drive from where I live, my friend Margaret books coach and tickets for a lovely group of crafting ladies, we have a great day and spend too much money!!
Well~ they also hold a competition on the day, and you are welcome to enter. Last year it was a wedding theme, and this year it's "Just Black and White", nothing more, not even grey, so hopefully you will think tonights card will qualify.
It's hard not putting even a splash of colour on, but this wonderful Crafty Individual Flower stamp is always lovely just stamped and embossed, so that's what i have done. I have used the brick embossing Tim Holtz folder in the background (don't think it shows up on camera, but looks ok on the real thing) and have added a "Perfect Day" sentiment on top of my new Nestie Tag, which I love. To finish off I have added just a couple of pearl white gems.
The quality and amount of cards they get entered, are fantastic. It is lovely to see how people interpret the set theme.
I have managed to enter this card into the following challenges:
Allsorts--Plain and Simple
Colour Create--All White
