Black With 2 October Palette

Hello dear friends.
 
I'm here today with the
 October Challenge
 from
 
And, how gorgeous is this months palette -
 
Black
with
 Sunset Pink 
&
 Shimmering Gold.... 



Starting with my card this month.
 
I am so in love with this
 elegant image, but sadly
the beautiful gold hilights
 just don't show up
in a photograph...
 


The Palette...
 




The papers and image I have
used for the card are
 from Kanban.



A beautiful black silk flower
from my stash with a centre jewel
rescued from a different flower,
 it just goes so perfectly with
 the image and
 the colour palette.




The butterfly is a
 Cheery Lynn die
 "Exotic Butterfly Mini"
 cut from gold
 Mirri Board.
 
And, of course,
 black cardstock.
 From American Crafts.

My layout this month
was just screaming
 girlie, with
 these colours.
 
And these photo's of
 eldest Granddaughter were
 a perfect choice.



The striped paper and
 glitter paper are from the
 "Posh" Collection
by
 Teresa Collins.
 
The dotty paper is
 Papermania "Confetti".



The border punch is by
 Martha Stewart
 "Daisy Fan"
Deep Edge Punch.



The flowers are a mix of
 Prima and Petaloo.
 
The gorgeous rhinestone flourish
 is from
 Creative Expressions.



The large leaf embellishment
 is the
 "Ivy"
 die from
Creative Expressions,
and the small leaves,
tucked behind the flowers,
 is a die from
Marianne Creatables
 "Leaves 255".



The monochrome frame,
top right,
 is another Marianne Creatables
 die "Eline Frame 219"
 with two layered butterflies
 from Cheery Lynn
 "Exotic Butterfly Mini".



The gold ribbon is from
 my stash, the large
rhinestones are Kaiser,
 and the black cardstock
 is American Crafts.





Totally loving this layout,
 and Rebekah loves
 it too!
 
Now, I know you are just
 dying to play with this
 month's palette too,
 the colours are just
 too gorgeous to
 pass by.
 
So, head straight over to
 and see what my fellow
 DT girls have done
 with these colours -
 pure inspiration!
 
Then have a play yourself,
 either a card or a layout
or both.
 
Just remember to start
 with a black background
when you play.
 
Enjoy.
 
See you at BW2
 
Hugs
