    Hello everyone,
    I wasn’t aware of this challenge until I had a lovely email from Pam Sparks this morning.
    I had to make a very fast Birthday Card yesterday and some of it is done in black. So I have left a link on Mr Linky. I don’t imagine my work to be any way as good as the beautiful work of the design team and think I would have created a much different card if I had known about the challenge. However it is always fun to entre …………
    Thanks Pam ~ Good luck everyone!
    Hugs, Candy

    I have just got some copics and I thought I’d put my first ever copic coloured card into the challenge! The DT samples are fabulous and so inspirational.
