Black & White & Hot Pink

I'm back with another black and white card....guess this is a very popular combo this spring. The challenge at Play Date Cafe is black and white with a SPLASH of HOT PINK. What a fun color combo!



I tried to keep my SPLASH to a minimal amount. To create the background I started with black CS, then used white embossing powder on the Versamark stamped image. The stamp is from Hero Arts. The felt flower was made with dies from Sizzix and PTI. The felt zig zag is also from a PTI die. The pearl brad is from Eyelet Outlet and the edge border punch is from Martha Stewart.

This is the lovely inspirational photo that was used to design my card.




Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
