Black & White with a Splash of Colour


The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is to use Black and white with a splash of colour.  I seem to be in an orange mood and decided to go with that as my splash.  It's entirely possible that I made a large splash....but I still like how my  my little 4" x 4" card turned out.

Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Memento (Tangelo)
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Gently Seasoned); Hero Arts (Scallop Borders)
Other: ribbon (stash); Bow Easy

For those who know me, I am not very proficient at making bows.  And so, after much thinking, I did eventually purchase the Bow Easy and am starting to play with it a little.  I'm not big on embellishments but for some reason I wanted a little black bow on this card.

That's it for now, off to enjoy my last two days with hubby before he returns to Angola!

If you have time to play in the SSS challenge go ahead, you have until Wednesday!  Have a fabulous day!
