Crafts 4 Eternity #53


This week Crafts 4 Eternity gave a great sketch but added the requirement for a Black & Purple colour combo. I used a "Forever Friends" image coloured with my Copic Ciaos and instead of using backing papers I used card for everything. The top black panel is embossed using the Cuttlebug embossing folder. The purple card has been punched using a fiskers combined corner and border punch. The ribbon and embellishments are from my stash. The sentiment was made on my laptop using Microsoft Word.
I am sending it to my youngest son who has just achieved a "Gold" standard pass on his advanced motorcycling test.

I hope you like the overall effect of this card and I would love it if you could give me your views on what was a fairly simple card to make.

Hugs,
