Macabre Monday challenge

Hi All

I have made this card for the challenge at Macabre Monday who's theme this week is "Pleasure and Pain".
You had to use something you loved and something you hated. I really did not have to think very hard on what I was going to do. From the very start I have hated leaving a white border round my images so decided that I was going to start to cut them out even if they were very fussy cutting. I was not very good at the beginning but kept trying to now when I feel my cutting out is passable. So for my pleasure part of the challenge I have used fussy cutting and for the pain I have left a white border.

I am entering this card in the following challenges

  2. Fab image, Jane! Your fussy cutting is brilliant! I often do leave a border around my images but often shade them instead of leaving them white. However, some definitely look best without and this is one of those cases. Thanks for playing along with our Pleasure/Pain challenge this week. xxD
