Simply Create Challenge #54, Shades of Black
So, my card base is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 Gina K Gina K Designs. heavy weight cs. It is matted with a black cs 5 x 5 piece on which I did diagonal scoring with my Martha Stewart scoreboard. Then I used my new Cheery Lynn Designs doily die in SU gray cs and exotic butterfly die on a scrap of white using my CB to cut it out. Circle diecuts were made with Nestabilities. The sentiment from Gina Ks Fanciful Tags is punched using a partial portion of an EK Success label punch, a little trick I learned on-line. The border on scrap white is Cuttlebugs' Fancy borders. I've added a gray satin bow made with my Bow Easy, a stickpin from CTMH, (already made up for you) and pearls from my stash. The crochet white flower and the center antique brad are from SU.
This card belongs in the fussy card category, but it was worth it, I think.
Have a Happy Weekend. Don't forget to check-out Less Is More early tomorrow for another challenge.
