BC253: Color Challenge


I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date.  

I started working on my blogger's challenge card this morning after I saw this card (the one from Maile Belles) last night.  I thought about it all night and knew what I wanted to do and thought it would just roll off my fingers.  HUH???  Easy card, no WAY!

Today's blogger's challenge is red, black and white/vanilla.  While I adore making black, white and any color cards, this design I wanted to copy was not easy for me. 

I started off by stamping off my black but that didn't look good, so I went with a dark grey (hey...it's a shade of black right?).  Still not sure I love it, but I do like the overall design and just need to find the right stamp set to use for it.


Want to join us for blogger's challenge?  Join us by linking your red, black and white/vanilla creation at anyone who has the blog hop up or directly over on Lisa's blog.  Please link directly to your creation.
