Challenge - Black and White

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to a brand new challenge!

This week we're concentrating on black and white. There's something so stylish and eye-catching about black and white cards and it's a combination I really should use more!

I used the amazing Say it With Style set which is fast becoming one of my favourite PTI sets. The size of the font is fabulous for creating a card that really features a sentiment.

Stamps - Say it With Style
Paper - In Bloom
Card - Stamper's Select White/True Black
Other - True Black Saddle Stitch ribbon/Prima flower/silver brad

Over to Aimes:

"I was still on my masking kick for this challenge so decided to make a card very similar to the one I sent Kate for her birthday. I hope you're not too bored of the design, I love how those flowers and leaves 'pop' against the black!"

Card Recipe
Stamps: Friend 'til the End
Ink: Versamark
