Quick card.

Two blogs posts in one day *Sits down*. I am in a great craft group on FaceBook and we have a monthly card swap, I always try to do something different from my usual style so the recipient doesn't get what they would expect from me.

Today I made a pink and black card, the picture doesn't do the black layer justice. It is gorgeous pearlised paper from The Papeterie in my second home of Aberdeen. 

Hope you like the card.
