A Splash of Colour

Well it's Saturday again so time for another LIM challenge and, this week, Mandi and Jen have asked for a 'Splash of Colour(s)' on a dark background. I had an idea in my head on the way to my craft room but, believe me, it wasn't this or anything like it! However I noticed a new stamp set, A Dozen Thoughts, on my desk and this particular sentiment was crying out to be used - hence not the idea in my head. Anyway onto the card -
I started by stamping one of the Chalk Talk frames onto Real Red cardstock then cut out with the matching framelit, onto this I added a Basic Black circle and the aforementioned sentiment punched with a Circle Punch. The card base is Basic Black with a slightly smaller mat onto which I did a little embossing on two corners purely to add a bit of texture and fixed to the card with dimensionals. I finished the card with a knot of Real Red Taffeta Ribbon and added the tag on top.
Have a great weekend and if you're off to a firework party stay safe. I have a (belated) Halloween party to go to later at my Grandchildren's so do pop back tomorrow for 'Simples Sunday' where I will show you some really easy treat pouches which I have made for the children (and some adapted ones for Christmas!)
