Quixotic Challenges

Hi guys! Hope you're all well! I've been super duper busy with my Etsy shop as usual and blogging seems to have been totally neglected but I'm hoping from next week I'm going to get regular posts up! Thank you to everyone who still reads and stops by!

But today, I've got my Quixotic Challenges card to show you. This week Simonne picked the theme of black, white and one colour, so I chose sepia as my extra colour.

I used a Paper Make-up sentiment stamp-they do just the best range-this one is called 'when the world says give up'. I dug out my DCWV La Creme pack and got to work! I do love that DCWV stack-definetly one of my faves! I also added some stitching around the card.

I also added some flat backed pearls . Here's the front view.

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:

Paperplay Challenges: real stitching
SimonSaysChallenge-Pearls and Lace (black pearls, doily lace punch)

I'll be back soon:)
