BC273: Splash of Color

Finally it's Friday, I was afraid this day would never arrive.  Although the weather is not looking good and I'd love to crawl back into bed, I'm glad it's finally Friday.

Last night I finally sat down and created my card for blogger's challenge to use black, white and a splash of color.  I hadn't stamped all week and was determined to at least get one card done.

Now, I'm not going to kid you-this card took me FOREVER.  I had gotten these Memory Box Woodrow Rosette dies and could not figure out to how to create the flower.  Our fearless leader, Lisa, led me in the right direction and I was finally able to figure it out.

The sketch I used was July's sketch for you to try which worked beautifully I thought with what I had in mind.  I originally had left my rose strip of paper blank but decided to go back and add the sentiment from Standup4sentiments from The {Stamps} of Life.

Hope you will join us over at Blogger's Challenge this week, love this challenge and see the splash of color that everyone uses!
