Black and White

I always think that a black and white card has such a dramatic look to it. And, with these lovely stamps from the Gina K. Designs Just a Little stamp set I think that look is certainly prevalent. I also used a die from Crafter's Companion Die'sire Edge'ables line called Lattice Flourish to add even more drama to the look.


The white panel was added to a black card base and I also added a sheet of white card stock to the inside so that a sentiment or message can be added later on. Also on each butterfly I added some pearls to the bodies of the butterflies.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Dies R Us Challenge #102-Black and White-No Other Color
Double D's Challenge-Don't Bug Me

I really am happy with this card and I hope you like it as well. Thanks for the visit and for your wonderful comments you leave me.

God bless,
Verna
