Allsorts WK 153

Morning all!
The sun is shining, hurray!!! It's our annual flower festival in Spalding this weekend and I might just go if the weather holds out, our kids love seeing all the floats made out of tulip heads.
This weeks
 challenge is 
Black and White 
and I love this theme, I always love the idea of colouring an image in black and white as I don't do it very often, so thanks Jo for setting us this challenge :)
I don't usually have a 'story' in my head when creating something but with this the idea I had was of a lady who lost the love of her life on the Titanic and all she has left to remember him by is an old photo, a postcard and a newspaper clipping from the disaster.......

I made my card into an easel keepsake box:

Challenges I would like to enter:
Simply Magnolia - Use 2 or more stamps
IAMC - Monochromatic
Just Magnolia - Wk 155 Anything goes (optional pearls and swirls)

Go Kreate shaped card die
Magnolia stamps -Edwin with binoculars and pier background
Magnolia DooHickies - peony petal, heart swirl branch, antique lace border
Marianne creatable rolled flowers die
Whimsy mini stamp and postcard stamps
SU polka dots embossing folder
Papers - Magnolia newspaper print and Little Yellow Bicycle 'Swoon' 6x6 paper pad
Kaiserkraft stamps 

Just got time to show you this:
hope you will be able to join in the fun as there will be lots of prizes up for grabs along the way!
