A Challenge Card

Hello blogging friends . Welcome to my room . Seems like Doug has  become  more independant as of late which means I have had a little  extra  time for crafting . Creating a craft group on line , The Candy Bar, and also joining  in on some other challenges . Tonights card is for a Black and White  challenge on The lollypop ladies blog   Now I love Black and White themes , and when I found this blog on Annmaree's post I was enthused . And here is my entry .
recipe
Basic Black and Whisper White ,SU
Striped paper, Christina Re
Ink, Basic Black, SU
      Stamps Happen,Inc..New York Socialite.
Pearls from my stash.
As usual I stayed with my simple style with little embellishing . I did try some flowers , ribbon and buttons but decided that the elegant lady could hold her own as the focal point . Would you have used some other embellishing?

Catch you again soon cheers for now Shirley-Anne .

This is very chic and stunning! Maybe I would have put one sparkling diamente in the bow of her hat! But she is also just beautiful the way she is
Shirley and I love the striped background. Great job on the challenge and I am glad Doug is doing better lately! Say hi to him from me!
