My Heart Pieces - Use Black

Hi Everyone!  I am back with a second post today, after surviving the girls day out with my Mother and Sister.  We had a lovely day out enjoying some shopping and a lovely lunch at the Summerland House Farm/House with No Steps which is a charitable organisation that provides meaningful employment for adults who have a disability.  It combines a work-working area, nursery, farm, gift shop, museum, and cafe/restaurant, and also has putt putt golf and a water park for the kids with extensive gardens throughout the grounds. My sister who is down from Queensland visiting now has a car full of plants and pots to take home whilst Mum and I brought some local produce including honey roasted macadamias and a roasted capsicum, chilli and cashew nut pesto.

Anyway on to my card!

With Halloween just around the corner the challenge this week over at My Heart Pieces Challenge Blog we want you to get in the mood and create using Black.


You could say I've gone dotty over this challenge this week!  My card today uses Black and White Polka Dot Paper from Bo Bunny and my Scalloped Card Cutting File once again which is from the Cutting Cafe's Shaped Card Collection.    To highlight the scallops I have simply punched some circles from plain black paper.  This adorable image is called Noyontara from My Heart Pieces Digital Stamps.  Isn't she just the cutest.  I have colored her with my Tria Markers adding some little pearls as buttons on her jeans.

We would love for you to join in the fun using black for our Challenge this fortnight.   For more Black Inspiration be sure to pop over and check out all the Design Team creations on the My Heart Pieces Challenge Blog.

Such a cutie Danie. Love your background papers and especially the scallop trim at the bottom with the polka dots.

You are right, she is really cute. I love your colouring in of her, and it's such a lovely idea to use the tiny pearls as buttons on her jeans. It's little things like that are the perfect finishing touch.
