Black and White you say...

Yes that is our challenge at FOSTV this week.
 Hope everyone had a great weekend. Saturday
 we had the most fabulous weather, no wind and 73 degrees!
A gardeners paradise~~  Okay, so on with the challenge,
 sometimes the absence of color is a bit challenging dont you think?
You have to think a bit differently when its just black and white.
 I love this dp with the cool black and white diamonds, and the little
 dotted Washi tape seemed to be the perfect partner with them.
I embossed the top portion with a diamond folder
 to mimic the bottom, then added
 a little jewel at each intersection. The sentiment  is from the
Bring On The Sun Set and was cut 
with a Spellbinder Fancy Label and using the chalkboard technique.
 My cut out flowers are one of the images 
from the Black Eyed Susan Mini Set, and definitely a 
challenge not to color to it I might add!
A pretty simple card, I looked at it for a week trying to add
something more to it but nothing worked so this is it!
We all had different takes on the B&W theme so
you will want to pop over and check out my teamies
fabulous creations! And when you join the fun you also
have a chance to win  the Set this week.

I love the black and white only card, Davi! It really stands out. I've always loved that Black-Eyed Susan. I'll have to get mine out sometime and use it.

Clean and simple and sensational! I love the black and white combo and that they images aren't colored. Very dynamic card.
Glad you're enjoying that beautiful weather....we've been having a little of the same down this way too.

Black and white is a challenge but you sure know what to do with these colors. The mix of materials (paper, washi tape, embossing folder, some sparkle) are giving this card a chic look. Well done; it's gorgeous! XX
