Challenge #43 Unstampabelles - second card

Well. we are knee deep in January already. In Australia so far we have had fire, flood and fear.

 In the wider world, people are trying to threaten freedom of speech and liberty by also using fear. I am glad to see that the world is a little smarter than that!

Je suis Charlie!

Here, on our humble blogs, we will forge on with the daily humdrum of life and laugh where we can. We are not always happy - happiness is not something we should experience all the time else we will not know it when we do.

We can always be content however.

And occasionally we experience joy.




Today I am showcasing a card I made for the Challenge #43 at Unstampabelles for January.

The theme for January is


This is a rub on as is the corner


The twist for this challenge is to look out your window and incorporate something from there in your card, so I thought I would use a photo I took on New Year's Eve 2014 from balcony of the last sunset for the year.


It was a stunner!


I used the photo to print off onto some glossy paper from my computer and go this very muted, lacking detail but general idea image


I put it in a commercial photo card, and added some rub-ons and three bits of black bling


So, my card for Unstampabelles.

I will be back with some other work soon......housework upstairs is nearly completed!
My craft room now also needs a thorough cleanout and sort!
Any volunteers?

I will enter this in the following challenge(s):
