Dramatic Flowers

Aren't black and white cards great? Black and white is definitely my favorite combo, and throwing in that slash of color just makes such a dramatic card. I got to use some more new Penny Black stamps! I liked how this card turned out because it has nice, clean lines. Love this DCWV stack too (All Dressed Up). I've used it a few times now. Enjoy!

This card is for a lot of challenges:
  1. CPS - for CPS120 (using the same sketch as 2RB)
  2. 2 Red Bananas - for Sketch Challenge (using the same sketch as CPS)
  3. Flourishes - for Timeless Tuesday Challenge #20 - I used Garden Shadow II here as the inspiration, but I used a colored patterned paper instead of the black and white PP
  4. Creative Card Crew - for Challenge #15 Black + One other color - I also used white, hope that's okay!
  5. Stamp Something - for Black, White, and one other color - My other color is pink!
  6. Stampin' for the Weekend - for Challenge #3 Rock n Roll 60's - I used "Time of the Season" by the Zombies. The flowers remind me of Spring and hey, will you look at that, it's a season!
