Totally Gorjuss Challenge 69 - Black +1 - DT

Today is a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and this week's theme is 'black plus one other colour' I have used blue. Again I have used a Lili of the Valley stamp and coloured with Promarkers. I never use black and to be honest don't really have papers in this colour but I had a old Basic Grey pad which I got to use for men's cards and it had a few sheets left in it and luckily they had black on , phew! and I have to be honest I am really pleased with the result such a change to my normal pink cards so maybe I will use black more often.
Anyway thanks for taking the time to visit me today and I will be back soon although I have a magazine commission to work on next week so no doubt that will take most of the week.

I am entering this card into the challenge over at Stamp Something which is 'flowers'

Hi, hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend, it has been a bit warmer here this week so fingers crossed we might be able to get out to the park with the kids this weekend.
