#TGIFC297 Color Challenge

 Hello & Welcome!

So today is my first posting of 2021 for a card challenge.

I'm joining the TGIFC#297 challenge. 
Here is what I created for this challenge. 

Details:  Card Base - Basic Black (SU) Flower Dies (unknown as they were a gift and did not have a company listed) Flowers were die cut with Whisper White (SU) cs.  The largest flower was embossed with the Swiss Dot Embossing Folder.  I used a 2 small SU cirle punches one for the center of the dotted flower and one for the center of the flower in the upper right flower.
Also used Paisley print designer paper (Doodlebug designs) that I've had in my stash forever.  A White brad and the sentiment is also from a new stamp set (Hero Greetings) from Hero Arts that I also received as a Christmas gift.  I popped the sentiment up with foam mounting tape.

A simple but fun little card to create.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit and Happy Stamping!


  1. Oh I like it. I should get busy and make some new cards. I haven't done any since my Christmas cards

  2. i love polka dots.. this is really cute

  3. This is so fun and whimsical! I love the paisley DSP! Thank you for joining us at TGIF Challenges!

  4. This is one of the most fun and fantastic black and white cards ever, Ida! I love it so much, and what a great first card of the new year!

  5. Very nice. I have always loved paisleys, but never thought about using them in a card/paper.

  6. Bold and beautiful! Love the bold, simples flowers in contrast to the pretty paisley print

  7. May be simple but the design is fabulous! Love the bold flowers with the paisley. That little sentiment is perfect!

  8. This is lovely, Ida! I always love b&w cards and this is a beaut, Jo x

  9. You just can't beat black and white for elegance! I love your take on the sketch, Ida! It has a lovely retro feel with the paisley. Although for all I know, paisley is back now and your design is ultramodern! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

  10. love the black and white...always elegant.
