Anya Ink - Black, white & 1

I have been keeping this under my hat and bursting to tell, I have been asked to be a guest designer at Anya Ink for the month of January! I was so excited and honoured to be asked to be the first monthly guest, and then I saw the challenges and wow, for me they are all pretty challenging so it should be great fun!

This weeks challenge is to use the colours black, white and 1 other, I chose orange. I really had no idea what I was going to do until I spent AGES walking around my local store looking for paper and when I was just about to give up I spotted these two papers and fell in love, I knew exactly what I was going to do with these and my new stamp I had on order was perfect, then I saw the little Eiffel Tower charm on the counter when I was waiting to be served (along with some other little treasures you will be seeing soon!) and figured it must have been fate :)

So, it's another easel card (yep, I'm addicted) My name is Fran and I'm an easel-a-holic! maybe I should start a support group, lol.

So, not much to say, the Rose paper is sassafras lass, pocket full of rosies, and the black and white paper is GCD studios, paris nights collection. I have used my MS border punch (again) Lace is from my stash, flowers are from Spotlight and Bizzy Becs, pearls are also from spotlight.

Here is my card, with the lovely Madelynn (I treated myself to some twinkle tots, kind of a late birthday, early Xmas present):A closer pic of the top:

A bit of an angel so you can see the easel action going on back there and the dimension where I have mounted the image and mats below using foam adhesive:

My darling little Eiffel Tower charm, I'm loving it, it's too cute:

So swing by the Anya Ink website and see the DT amazing work and play along yourself!

I am also entering this card over at creative card crew challenge for an anything goes challenge :)
