Charisma cardz challenge #8–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  This week is just flying by, I can’t believe it’s Thursday already but at least it’s time for another charisma cardz challenge.  This week Allison has set the theme and she has chosen “black,white and 1 other”.  I decided to go for something bright and cheerful so choose yellow as my extra colour.  Here is my card:

charisma cardz #8 - black, white & 1 other

This card is a dinky 4x4 size but it’s just perfect for little notecards or even Easter cards.  I have used one of Sally-Ann’s newly released images over at DigiStamp Boutique and it’s part of the spring animals collection.  There are six different, all equally super cute, images in the collection and the set is on a special offer of just £4.20 at the moment – grab yours now whilst its at such an amazing price.  For once I also decorated the inside of my card to match the outside but I forgot to take a picture d’oh! 

We have two sponsors this week.  Firstly we have DigiStamp Boutique who are offering 6 digi images to one lucky winner.

Our second sponsor is Ai Factory and they are offering a surprise prize (it’s only a surprise cos I don’t know what it is at the moment lol!).

The rest of the design team have created amazing cards once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out or you can click on their names in my sidebar to visit their personal blogs.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us. 

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Freshly brewed challenge – ribbons and bows

Crafts and me challenge – time to spread your wings

Creative craft world challenge – use a square

Little red wagon challenge – animals (hope my little chick counts)

The pixie cottage challenge – sketch and/or something cute

I hope you will be able to join in with our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create.  I’d like to say hello to my new followers Helen and Sarah, thank you so much for following me, I hope you will visit often.   Have a wonderful day, whatever you are up to, and thanks for stopping by today.
