Black and White + One Colour

Hello again:) My Card today is for a few wonderful challenges which both have the theme of 'black/white plus one colour'. I hardly ever make cards that have this much black so it's certainly something new for me.... but I like how it turned out:)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today xx

(the twist being black/white + one colour)

Karen, this is so beautiful! Just love how you blended the background and having the die-cut branch gives the CAS card such great dimension. So brilliant and I'm always happy to see you at TIME OUT!!

Gosh, it's too bad this wasn't posted on Tuesday or you could have entered the City Crafter ombre challenge, too, with that beautifully ombre sky, Karen! This is stunning! It is like a nighttime viewing just before the last rays of daylight disappear!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #4!! Hugs, Darnell
