It’s Black & White with a Splash of Green

Hi everyone,


How was your weekend?  Hope your week is off to a good start!


I did go to the movies with my Mum and saw “Water for Elephants” – it was a very good movie but I the circus master was a very cruel man! 


I know that they say that the book in normally better than the movie but for this movie I do not believe I could read the book.  I must say the elephant in the movie was beautiful – as beautiful an elephant can be !


On to crafty things and I have a card to share with you.


The colours have been inspired by the challenge at The Play Date Cafe – It’s Black and White with a touch of Green.


The sketch layout was from Sketch Frenzy Friday – this sketch has closed but I liked the simplicity of it:













I have used Basic Black for the base of the card and I have embossed the Whisper White in the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines embossing folder.






Stamp set: Clearly for You, Pocket Silhouettes

Card: Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz

Accessories:  1-3/8” (3.5 cm) Circle Large Punch, 1-3/4” (4.4 cm) Scallop Circle Extra-Large, 1-1/4” (3.2 cm) Basic Black Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Elegant Lines Embossing Folder, White Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



This was a really quick card to do and I just love the large striped grosgrain ribbon.


What do you think?  Leave me a message if you get a chance and visit again soon!

I never know whether to watch the film or read books first! Very pretty card. I always love that ribbon, it's so dramatic! It all works so well with that embossed background too! Thanks for playing along with us at The Play Date Cafe!
