Pile it On! Sunday and FREEBIE

Things are finally slowing down a little here and I'm finally getting to catch up on all the things on my to-do list. Even though the list is still long and that I'm sure I'm forgetting to put things on there, I'm chugging along.

It's Sunday again and that means another Pile It On! Challenge! This week, we want you to play along with us in a COLOR POP challenge: use black, white, and one other color. I always struggle with color challenges EXCEPT this one. I absolutely love doing these kinds of cards. We also have a wonderful sponsor, The Cutting Cafe. The butterflies are from the Social Butterfly set and the sentiment is from Time Sentiment set by me, which is currently being sold at the Paper Maniac Digital Designs section.

I'm giving away the sentiment I used on this card as a digital freebie. Scroll down below for more info.

Challenge: Black, White, One other color
Sponsor: The Cutting Cafe

Images: The Cutting Cafe Social Butterfly set; Raindrop Echo Designs for Paper Maniac; Paper: The Angel Company free BW download; Tools: CB and Nestabilities; Accessories: rhinestones
