In Black and White

***This card made the Top 5 at Cupcake Craft***

Happy Tuesday,

This is going to be a quick post as I should be making dinner! Hope you had a great Tuesday. It's a rainy one here again, a good day for stamping and relaxing inside with the kids.

I create this card today for a few challenges. The image is Whimsy Skunk colored with Copics. The papers are some I got at WalMart. I love the soft floral patterns and elegance of these. They are paired with Basic Black and Whisper White from SU!. I embellished with a fabric flower, ribbon rose, black and white striped ribbon, strips of sticky rhinestones, and some brads.

This card fits the challenges at:
Cupcake Craft of black and white
A Spoon Full of Sugar to use hearts
Stamp with Fun - the layout I used, I did flip it around though
Cute Card Thursday to use stitching
Creative Card Crew to use ribbons
Paper Take Weekly to use "My Favorite Things" of which I used one of my favorite Whimsy Stamps

OK, I think that's all of them! Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great night! Happy stamping! :)
