It's Not All Black and White

Butterfly Thanks

I need to find a way to incorporate a little more black into my cards. I love the look and it's not my go-to color. I started with Fall-To Layout #50 from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. I decided to go with my much loved Martha butterfly punch and a mix of solids and patterns for my "shapes". The bow by far took the longest time on this card. I tied and re-tied that thing twenty times I bet. I also added some Prima gemstones to my solid butterflies.
Hugs to you! And thanks for dropping in.

What's In It?
Stamps~ Thankful Blossoms (Verve)
Paper~ celery, caribbean (SU), raspberry fizz, white (PTI), girl friday (Cosmo Cricket), black dots (Making Memories)
Ink~ onyx black (VersaFine)
Other~ long scalloped rectangle nestie (Spellbinders), Nursery Tales gemstones (Prima), pins (Heidi grace), ribbon (American Crafts)
