Smart girl

   The theme for this month's challenge at Dragonfly Dreams is monochrome and it is being sponsored by The Paper Shelter. I made this for a friend's daughter to congratulate her on passing her GCSE's and wishing her the best with her A level studies.
    I cut a square of grey core'dinations  cardstock and fixed it in a diamond orientation onto designer paper from DCWV. After wrapping black satin ribbon round the centre of this I matted and layered it onto black and then white card.
   The digi image from The Paper Shelter is called 'Smart is the new sexy' and after colouring it using Promarkers I matted it onto black card which had been cut using a scalloped Tattered Lace rectangle die. I finished the card with a black bow and a white peel off sentiment.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Dream Valley - monochrome
   I Love Promarkers - use a die cut
   Allsorts - new beginnings
   The Crazy Challenge - getting ready for school (6th form in a school)

   The Paper Shelter - make it digital
   Kitty Bee Designs - school
   Pattie's Creations Designs - back to school
   Make My Monday - back to school
