Shhhhh, it's a secret!!

Soo.. when Melissa said today was gonna be a very special day, what did you guys think she meant? ;) Luckily for you, today consists of a mini surprise celebration and fun giveaway. Make sure to stop by Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog to see what all the fuss is about!!

We love ya, girl!! Enjoy. :)

If you know Christy, you'll know that her fave combo is black and red - which is the one thing I have picked up on in the very short time I've "known" her. So naturally I had to go with that colour scheme.

I have, once again, used Wryn Birthday Girl and coloured her up with ProMarkers. I've used a few choice papers from My Minds Eye Rosy collection. What a wierd red that is. :/ Like.. a worn out red, but I kinda like it. Shame I can't seem to get it to match any of my ProMarkers, huh?!

I've kept the layout.. simple?! HA! Distressed and doodled a few of the edges and added some wide organza ribbon down the black panel. I've tied a little 'just for you' charm using some red bakers twine and a few red and black WOC roses finish off the embellishing.

I've sent this card, along with another *;)* to Christy - they're gonna be way late for her birthday, but I've apologised, and stuff like this is always nice to keep, right? Even though she'll probably receive 1000 other amazing cards off other fellow crafters! 

So.. that's it from me. Head over to the Challenge Blog NOW and get in on the action!!
