Black Magic!

My mumasked me to make a card for my nephew's 18th birthday. I don't see him very oftne at all, he isn't "into" anything so I was struggling for a theme. Eventually late last night I threw this together. Not happy with it, I suppose I have been putting more detail into my cards recently and it looks a bit bare...not sure about the colour combinations either but it seemed OK last night!LOL. Anyway, it done now!


I used inspiration from a challenge over on Crafts by Carolyn called Black Magic where the challenge was simply to make something with a black base. I must admit it has become the norm to reach straight for my white linen card stock. I have another few ideas to try out with this challenge in mind but unfortunately I MUST catch up first before I can play!

wow, this is a great card especially as it is for a male, the colours and embossing are fab and really striking on the black background.
