Black, White and one other Colour

It's Team B's challenge over on the Teddy Bo challenge blog for the next fortnight, and the theme is
Black, White and one other Colour
The design team have interpreted it in a number of different ways, so pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. Although it's not technically our challenge, I do like to have a card to show on a Tuesday, so keeping with the theme here's what I have come up with.

I've used one of this week's new releases Bo in the Christmas wreath, which is a three part pack, you get Bo in the Wreath on his own, and both Joy and Noel too each with Bo in the Wreath representing the O. The image has been coloured in Photoshop in full colour, then I have desaturated all but the red. I printed the image out twice and popped the letters and the wreath up on foam pads. The paper is from Debbi Moore's Black and White Chic Boutique CD, the red metallic card is from Home Bargains, black organza ribbon from MeiFlower and white ribbon with rose from a local craft shop. I have paper pieced the J and Y, covered the red bow and ribbon with glossy accents and added nail gems as the berries.

 Expect to see this image again this week only in full colour next time.

Here is a peek at the rest of this week's new releases, pop over to the store for a better look.

You have until Sunday Midnight (GMT) 4th September (oh my goodness it will soon be Christmas) to enter the challenge, can't wait to see your fabulous creations.

This is three posts in three days from me, so I promise I will leave you in peace for a day or two now.

Really like this theme, the red really 'pops out' from the black & white. Love the expression on Bo's face, very cute. As usual, the card is lovely.
