Dare to be different

Good morning, it's time for my 2nd card to hopefully inspire you to enter our February challenge over at Country View Crafts. You can see the first card, my ballet dancer, I made for the challenge here. Thanks for all the lovely comments you left me, she was a fun one to make.

For this month the lovely Sue has chosen the theme of Black and white or black/white and ONE (please don't add a hint of 2 or 3 😉 extra colours, just the one ).
You can enter our challenges as many times as you like and combine with other challenges. There is also a £20 crafting voucher up for grabs to the lucky randomly selected winner to spend over on the Country View Crafts on line store. Remember that UK postage and packing is absolutely FREE! All the details for the challenge can be found here.

So for this card I decided to be a little bit more off the beat and added green into the mix of black and white. 
Perhaps I am being influenced  by all the lovely green shoots popping up in my garden?

All my daffs outside are getting ready to pop open. 

To made my card I used another fun Visible Image stamp set called Dare to be different. I stamped and embossed the lips, lipstick stain and tip of the lipstick using very sparkly green embossing powder.

I decided for this card I would go for a clean and simple one and put this one together.

and one last shot.
