3 Into 1 - Or Should It Be 1 Into 3?

I'm never quite sure which way round lol xxx

But basically what I mean is that I've done 1 card for 3 challenges.

I have to say that I really love this Penny Black image - it is one of my faves.

So The 3 challenges are -

A Spoonful Of Sugar Challenge which is a fab sketch
by my pal Caryn (loved it chick xxx)

& Colour Create Challenge which this week is red, yellow, black and white

So I think I ticked all the boxes there. I coloured the image with my old faithful PMs but left it bling free.

And this is the card.

I've put the pics on here a bit different cos I've removed all the backgounds.

What do ya think?
Do they look better backgroundless?
Or does it make them look like they are sort of floating?

I can't quite decide.

The paper was from a download I got from the lovely Marieka Vermeulen. I've had this for ages and the link is to her Etsy Shop, but I'm not sure she still does the black and white collection.

The ribbon is from Poppicrafts and the buttons were from who knows where cos I've had them for soooo long and never used them, cos I'm really not a 'yellow' person!!

But they came in very handy here!!!

And that's it - a teeny bit of dimension that's all, which you can hardly see, but it is there!!!

Well I have paperwork coming out of my ears so I have to knuckle down and get it sorted today. Once I am in that frame of mind, I will whizz through it - but getting started is the hard bit.

Then I am off for a bit of a shop to get some goodies for a blog candy I have planned VERY soon. I have most of it but there are one or two bits I want to put in as well. So have the best day peeps and see you soon.

Hugs to all xxxxx
