Looking For Clues

Time is flying and here we go with the start of yet another week but the sun is shining here in Southern Ontario - how lovely is that.  Not so in Saskatchewan apparently.  My aunt just called to tell me they were OK after the major windstorm yesterday.  I felt terrible because I didn't hear about it and it turns out they lost trees, roofs and even a ferry went for a float on its own.  In between loads of laundry yesterday and the dreaded ironing, I made this card for the weekly challenge over at Mo Manning's Challenge Blog.

The challenge was to make a card using black, white and kraft along with one other colour.  Those colours just screamed simple to me and here is the result.  Inside I put the following:

The clue . . . 

Too Many Candles
Too Little Cake!


The image was a generous freebie calling Looking For Clues and was coloured using a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons.  The papers are from Karen Foster Designs and my stash.  The card stock is Recollections (Michaels).  The sentiment was computer generated.  Other supplies used:  Card Candy (Craftwork Cards), Chalk (Mungyo) and Ribbon (Michaels).
