Falling for Black and White


Loved this FTL sketch and decided to use it for - you guessed it - another thank you card!  Almost done now - phew!

Found this scrap of Costco DP and went from there.  I just love black and white cards and this one came together quickly by adding a touch of greys - bonus!

A bit of ribbon, a butterfly (sorry, still addicted to this punch...), some half pearls and a touch of bling for that little "zip" and I was a happy stamper :)    It also qualifies for this week's Just Add Ink challenge.

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous day!





What's In It?
Stamps: Wordsworth
Paper: Costco DP, Going Grey, Basic Grey
Ink: Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly and Border Punch, 5/8" White Satin Ribbon, Bling, Half Pearls, Dimensionals

You are on a creative roll lately :) The black and white is stunning and the little bit of bling makes me swoon :) Change the sentiment and this would make a fabulous wedding card too :) Very classy and elegant :) I think I posted my Passion for PTI card too early...it's supposed to be for the 14th and we are 9 hours behind!! LOL At least I didn't give away what the challenge is :) Hugs
