The beginning of the month means a new challenge on Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge Blog - it's always anything goes as long as you've used patterned paper on your creation.
Head over to the challenge blog here for all the details and lots of inspiration.
To make my card I've used a topper and backing paper from the most recent issue of Making Cards magazine.
I layered the image with black paper and used a sentiment from Stampin' Up. I finished the card with some black gems.
