Hennah Elements


I am over at Make the Day Special today with my first solo post :)  I decided to play with the beautiful Hennah Elements set from Altenew.  I hope you pop over to see what I made.

While I had the set out I also made this card:

I absolutely love this stamp set and how good it can look just stamped in simple black and white (which is great when you are feeling too lazy to colour in!).  On this card I popped up a panel over a black border and simply stamped the Hennah images along the edge with some masking.  I topped off with a gold embossed sentiment from Altenew's Magnolias for Her set which is new to me.  A few pink gems add a pop of colour.
I thought this card would also work for a few of the fab challenges that are currently running:
AAA Cards - Use a Little Gold.  My card incorporates a gold sentiment.

Virginia's View Challenge - Clean Slate.  This design features lots of white space.

Less Is More - Black + Metallic + a colour.  My card features black, gold and a touch of pink.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Something New.  This card includes new stash!

It is unusual for me to be able to enter so many challenges with one card - yay :)

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you will check out my other card made using Hennah Elements over at Make The Day Special.
