Sunday is a Good Day for Creating



My online friend, Kimmie, issued another challenge this weekend. I did her long card challenge last week. And this week, she challenged us to create a card using pastels and black. I had the barely banana and creamy caramel out for a SCS color challenge, so I used those. The stamps I used are my first Studio G clear stamps that I found in the dollar bin at Micheal's this weekend. The flower is stamped in real red and the stem in sage shadow. The image is matted on black. The greeting is stamped in black and accented with a couple of black brads. You can't see in the photo, but I also stamped the flower in barely banana along the top of the card. The caramel strip is stamped with the SU crosshatch background. Kimmie is right - a little bit of black makes the whole card "pop".
