River Rock on Black

The Dynamic Duos is having Black Tie week....One colour plus black with a dessert option.


The colour this time is...

It took longer to find the paper I knew I had stashed in the scrap box than it did to make the card!  I didn't add any brads for dessert.  Maybe the colored pearls will count some.

Do try to visit the Dynamic Duos site.  What a wonderful group of inspiration both by the design team and the participants. Wow!

I had a visit from Di of Pixie's Crafty Workshop yesterday.  Hi again, Di. She hosts the Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge.  And since I used these pieces of leftover DSP that were in my leftover box, I'm going to take this over on my next visit.

And, finally over at SCS, the Technique Challenge this week is No Stamping.  No stamping here.  I almost forgot, but pulled back at the last minute and added ribbon instead.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Paper:  River Rock, Basic Black, DSP (retired)
Other:  Elegant Butterfly punch, Basic Pearls, Black Grosgrain Ribbon (non SU), Silver Metallic Pen (non SU)

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I really enjoy your visits, especially if you let me know you stopped by.  Thanks for the tips on sizing the pictures.  I haven't decided which to go with.  Today it's extra large.  Sorry for those of you that have to scroll down to see the whole card.  I'll do a smaller picture next time just for you.

Enjoy!

This is an elegant card. Just the right amount of Bling. The colors look lovely together. Guess black really does go with everything !

It's gorgeous, Bonnie! I remember that dsp from SU. I have it in another color, maybe? Love what you did with the butterfly on black - so dramatic, yet so CAS!

Hi Bonnie - and welcome to the playground. I love your card loads, and it's perfect without any stamping. Did you knot the ribbon a couple of times - looks a great idea :) Di xx

Very elegant, Bonnie! It's torn, too, right? Just gorgie!

You are going to love the gang at the playground hosted by Di! I think they truly are pixies! (I'll be over on the bleachers keeping Mary H. company since she's still laid up.)
