BC2360: Black, White, Splash of Color


Blogger's Challenge today is one of my favorites- Black, White with a Splash of Color.  I think I went a little overboard on the splash this week, but it still works.

I used a new set from The {Stamps} of Life, Pattern2love along with the Butterfly2build set.  This card uses the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketch 149 from March which is an unusual one for me as I'm a pretty straight and narrow stamper and the off kilter piece usually throws me for a loop.


I added some Liquid Pearls in Petal Pink on the grid pattern and some Black Soot Distress Stickles on the butterfly.  I created some doodling around my edges as it just looked kind of blah without it.

Hope you will join us at blogger's challenge this week, you can link directly to your newly created item over at the Blogger's Challenge site.
