BIC17 Fresh Cuts


Good Morning!!!

It's Tuesday again....time for Beate's *Be Inspired* Challenge #17!!!.

Today Beate has chosen a
beautiful Coldwater Pillow.

You all know that I love *Black & White* cards....so this Challenge was a very fun for me.

This Color Combo always looks so elegant and of course that's exactly what I was trying to accomplish with this card as well.

The card was very simple to make....it measures 5" x 5".

I have used Basic Black as my base. Next I've stamped the *Fresh Cuts* image in Basic Black Ink and trimmed it to 3" x 3". The next Basic Black CS layer is 3 1/2" x 3 1/2". The Whisper White CS layer is 4" x 4". This whole section was placed on Stampin Dimensionals.

Next I have added the sentiment to the *Styled Silver* Label Holder and attached it with Basic Black Satin Ribbon (Michael's). Then I have centered the image to the base of the card.

Hope you get a chance to play along??? Don't forget to check all the talented ladies from Beate's DT - you can find them on the right hand side of my blog!!!

I'm off to see what's going on over at the SCS Challenge - catch ya later!!!
