Exactly the way you are - Crazy 4 Challenges #45

Mornin', all! Today, Jessie has a fun color challenge for us: black, white, and red! One of my very favorite color combos!


For my card, I'm using some Memory Box paper called Black Tie--appropriate, don't you think? I'm using Mojo Monday Sketch #146 for my layout. I used two patterns of paper for the base, on top of a Basic Black layer, then added some black lace. For the three horizontal elements I did that scrunchy ribbon thing--LOL, I don't know what you call it, so "scrunchy ribbon thing" works for me! I stamped the image, from Verve's One Person set, on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink three times. I colored with Copic markers, cut out, and layered the images with Pop Dots, then popped the whole thing up on the large oval element. I stamped the sentiment, from the same set, and punched it out, then attached it a bit lower than the sketch shows to work around my image. Finally, I added some silver flat-backed pearls to the center and as corner accents. I like it--lots of dimension on this card.

Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy girls...er, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C45.

Thanks so much for dropping in today! Can't wait to see what you do with these colors!
