CCS Challenge: Creative Elegance


The CCS Challenge this week is Creative Elegance using Black and white only ...we could use shades of silver and gray, but NO color! I had no idea what a challenge this was going to be... I love COLOR!!!

I found some Basic Grey designer paper that had NO color in it and so used that for my background. Then I stamped the I'm Your Friend sentiment using London Fog Memento ink onto Whisper White cardstock. It still looked quite boring....so I added a flower embellishment. Thanks Lisa for a challenge that really "challenged" me...now I appreciate color a whole lot more! :o) 

**Edited to add: I know in the picture it looks a tad pink...but I assure you it is not.   I took the picture about dusk and the natural light played tricks on me.  :o)  It was screaming for PINK!!!  hee~hee :o)



Card Deets:
Stamp: I'm Your Friend 
Cardstock: Black, White and Basic Grey Ambrosia dp
Ink: Memento London Fog
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Flowers and Brad
