Well and truely out of my comfort zone!

Good Morning! Happy Saturday!

I hope you've had a lovely week and are ready to enjoy your weekend!

This is a scheduled post as I am currently on a coach somewhere in the UK travelling back from the Alfie Boe concert that I accompanied my mum to last night! I'm not really a fan, but mum wanted to go and so I said I'd go too!!

So.....I thought last week's challenge at My Time to Craft was difficult because I really don't many Easter images (I bet you are all sick of that cute little bunny now!!)....but when I saw the challenge this week I nearly fell of my chair!!

Our theme for this week is as you can probably tell just from looking at my blog...I'm really not a gothic girl! I really had to think about what a gothic card would look like and resist the urge to add some pink!!

Here's what I came up with....
I've gone with a different sized/shaped card this week...not sure why...I just fancied a change! When looking through my Pollycraft images I came across this Steampunk image that I thought looked quite "gothic"....I then decided on my black, red and grey colour combo. I've coloured my image with my Promakers and then I decided to keep the background simple...using just plain black paper and that gorgeous red and white flowery paper. I think this hits the spot!

For more gothic inspiration pop by the My Time to Craft challenge blog and take a peek at all the gorgeous DT cards!

I'd also like the enter this card at:

I think this card is great! We do need to 'step out' of our comfort zone sometimes and I'm always glad when I do... but that's after it is all over and done with.
Fab job!

Lol Wedgie I googled what a gothic card would look like, so you were not alone. Great card though, the image is perfect as are the colours.
