St Lukes Charity Card Chalenge July

I can`t believe it`s July already. Where is the time going? Ofcourse a new month means a new challenge at St Lukes Charity Card Challenge. We had 40, yes 40 fantastic entries last month. Thank you all so much and keep up the good work.

This month is an easy peasy one (aren`t they all). We want you to send us a card using Black and White + one and only one, other colour of your choice. Your card can be any style, size or shape you wish. I can`t wait to see your fabulous designs.
Here is my card,

I seem to be a bit obsessed with this shade of blue at the moment but for me, a predominantly black and white card needs a vibrant colour, bright blue, hot pink or bright green. I used hot pink on my Less is More card and last time I made a green flower it reminded me of a cabbage (or maybe a lettuce) so bright blue it is.
The DP is Pink Petticoats Perfect Papers range.
The sentiment is Personal Impressions stamped in black inside a Waltzing Mouse Vintage Labels stamp in Bahama Blue and cut out with a nestie.
The ribbon is from a local haberdashery store and the flower is made from card from Papermill direct.

My daughters MiL Linda died of cancer last Sunday and although she wasn`t in a hospice,that would have been the next step I think. Most of us have seen first hand the wonderful care that is given to terminally ill patients in hospices around the world . In the UK they all rely on charitable donations so this challenge is invaluable to the St Lukes Hospice. Please keep joining us and sending your cards to sell to raise funds.
Pop over to the St Lukes blog and see the other DT cards to inspire you. Thank you.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
