Life is Good: A Study in Black & White

Today I'm helping celebrate Flourishes 6th birthday by participating in the Birthday Celebration Challenge.  All you have to do to play along is create a project that is black and white.  You can click HERE to get all the details and find out how you can participate in this challenge, too.  You'll want to check often as they are having other birthday challenges coming in the next couple of weeks.  It's going to be fun!

When I started working on my card, I had no idea where I was going with it.  I just knew it was going to be all black and white.  I had spent Sunday afternoon stamping with a friend and she graciously stamped some Flourishes images for me so I incorporated one of them in my card since it was black and fit the challenge.  Stamps, dies, punches, embossing folder, ribbon and brad; here is my card for this challenge.

Stamp Sets:  Swan Lake, Magnolias (Flourishes), Trust God (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Basic Black (Stampin' Up!), Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink (Ranger); Card Stock:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stacks (all Stampin' Up!); Accessories & Tools:  Ariana Sprig Die (Memory Box), Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Adorning Accents Edgelits Die, Black Brad, Curly Label Punch (all Stampin' Up!), 1/8" Polka Dot Ribbon, Smooch Pearlized Top Coat

Although you can't see it, the sentiment is from the Trust God Stamp Set and says, "Live Simply Love Generously Care Deeply Speak Kindly Leave the rest to God."

Until next time . . . happy creating!
