A new challenge...

Morning Everyone!

Its lovely and sunny here today! Which is very good news because...the number one fan is coming to visit....YAY!

Although its not going to be all fun and games, we are designing and making her wedding invites this weekend.  Im very excited to get my creative hands on a meaty project like this! Hopefully I will be able to post you the results over the next few days.

Right so on to my card for today.  Well another one of my new years resolutions was to join in to some challenges, and today I will be entering my first.  I am going to be taking part in the "Less is More" Week 57 - colour theme challenge.

This could be anything from off white to black with any shade of beige, brown or grey in between.

Which ties in perfectly with a card I made for my uncle getting a new job!  I love the fact the staples give it a masculine feel but also are a great way of attaching the ribbon! I think i might be on the hunt for some coloured ones on my excursion to Hobby Craft today!

What do you think?
Wish me luck :)

I'll be back some time over the weekend! Until then...
