Double Challenge - with Nichole's help!
Gosh... I've been having a hard time coming up with a black, white, & Kraft card for the StampTV color challenge even though I love the colors! Maybe my mojo is slipping. Then comes the featured stamper challenge! I was cruising Nichole's (ButterflyEars) gallery when I saw it.... my color challenge card! LOL! Now it was black, white & river rock. Love that combo! Similar enough... and gorgeous! I changed the layout slightly, used a scalloped circle instead of an oval, similar stamps, a different border punch, and moved the brads and ribbon. Then I used a CB folder & a bit of dp. Oh! And I popped up added an extra layer... so unlike me! The brads are different sizes out of necessity... I need more black brads. Yikes!
Thanks for the inspiration Nichole! I love your card and the one I made. And I thought I would be skipping the color challenge and now I have a double challenge card! Woo hoo!
