New design team

I was thrilled to be invited to join a design team last week for Creative Moments Blog
I have been getting to know the girlies on other facebook groups so was really touched to be asked.
Here is my first DT card - The challenge was Monochrome so I have opted for cream and black and made a card for my brothers birthday later this month.

 The sentiment - by Indigo Blu seemed perfect as he was given notice of redundancy just before Christmas and with over 25 years of service to the NHS this is going to be a massive change for him.
 I love the aeroplane leaving love in its wake and of course its sending him my love without being too sentimental about it.
Papers are just remnants of other projects - stamps are by Indigo Blu and Glitz and inside are by Kanban.

Hope he likes it!

The inspiration for my colour scheme came from another blog challenge - The Cupboard Trilogy where interestingly the challenge is to take inspiration for one of the design teams pieces - I took mine from Traceys card here .
The cupboard trilogy is a challenge I have been meaning to play along with for a while and now the two have  come together well.

    I love your card & think the images & sentiment are just right for a male card, especially when you don't want 'mushy' ;)
