WINTER IN THE MIDLANDS
{BG Bonus Sketch with a touch of red for Arty Girlz}
This B&W photo I took of a Winter scene in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands, South Africa, a few years ago, has been popping up every time I scratched for a photo I could use on a card. This time round it did not escape and worked quite well for this week's sketch (Susies) over at the Basic Grey Challenge #4 . The Arty Girlz Challenge #54 wants us to use Red on our creations and I thought that using red cardstock would contrast quite well with the B&W photo. So, once again, one creation, two challenges.
Patterned cardstock used: BG Infuse Suffuse & BG Figgy Pudding Red Ryder.
Thank you for stopping by and having a look.

  11. Desire,
    Its stunning, gorgeous, breathtaking, and any other adjective you would like to add. I think combining the 2 challenges was perfect.

    Also, I wanted to take a second to say thank you for all your lovely comments on my blogs. I, in turn have enjoyed being able to see a bit of your home and life as well.
