I had forgotten that on the first Thursday of the month Stamping 411 hosts a color challenge. This week I happened to discover it as I was checking out their latest sketch challenge. And once I got a look at it there was no way I was not going to participate.
I love a card that has some basic black and a pop of color. And lucky me, this one has three pops of color! I used a wonderful piece of herringbone DSP from the retired Night & Day collection. The flower is cut from the Flower Daisies #2 die and is finished off in the center with an antique brad. I almost got away with no stamping on this card, until I decided to add a little sentiment from Tiny Tags. My layout sketch is this week's Deconstructed Sketch.
This card has lots of wonderful layers that add some lovely heft to this card. I know I'm usually pretty clean when it comes to my cards, but I must confess that I secretly love lots of layers. There's something about picking up a card that feels somewhat heavy because it's got a lot going on! Even still, I think I've stayed true to my clean and simple style.
And I can't forget to mention the ribbon. I dyed some seam binding ribbon with Pink Pirouette reinker and it actually worked! I know it seems rather white in the photo, but in real life, it is pink! My last attempt at dying ribbon didn't work so well so I was very excited to see this little bit of success!
Thanks for stopping by!
