Everything Looks Great in B&W

I created this card for a current challenge over at StampTV, but realized that there are a few other places that this might work for. Over at Artful INKables they have challenge #25 going on and we are asked to create our own background paper.

The Play Date Cafe Challenge, is #40 and it is their Color Splash week. The challenge is to do black and white with a splash of any shade of green. I think that works also!

I created my background, using a stamp from Stamp Camp. I sponged and distressed with Old Olive from SU!. My focal image of Queen Anne's Lace, is from the Botanicals stamp set from Gina K. Design. Hugs and Prayers is from Nina Brackett's set by the same name. This pretty distressed wrinkle ribbon is from Michelle Wooderson's, Etsy shop. Here is a link to her blog.... you can get to it from there Fair warning, the stuff disappears fast. I added olive gems, black string and button as accents.

Thanks for taking time to come by. I always appreciate your visits and comments. Oh, and for those of you who have recently become followers, muah!
