Friendship Is Black and White

 Oh, and Silver.  Happy Sunday Everyone!  Today it's time for another Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  I hope you can all participate because our  sponsor this week is:

They are giving away a $25 gift certificate that includes FREE SHIPPING!
Here's what you need to do:

Create a friendship themed card or project, BUT only use shades of black, white and silver. You must use all three but nothing more!  Then link your creation up on the BLOG for a chance to win.  

Here's my take on the challenge:

I decided to use one of Lauren's My Time Made Easy Templates called, "In a Pinch."  I paired this with a set by PTI called Giga Guidelines and Elegant Flourishes by Clear Dollar Stamps.  Both paired together make really beautiful backgrounds.  The white paper I used is actually Brochure paper I got at Office Max.  I paired it with Versafine Black and it dried very quickly.  I'm not sure how well the paper would take dye based ink.  I'll have to experiment with that.  Anyways, this project has lots of little details and was really fun to make.

I wanted to point out some of the fun details:

 (Sorry it's crooked...no photo editing:)

This is the edging and underneath the punched border I used some Scor Tape and then rubbed Doodlebug's Black glitter on to it for a bit of sparkle.  I added some leftover trim below that.

At the top I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkes in black to the little flowers.

Finally, I used some Crystal Effects and these tiny magnetic discs from Basic Grey to close the top.

  So, are you ready to play along?  Get your game hat on and go create.  I will be sewing pillows and curtains today to try and finish up the last details of my daughter's room.  I hope to be able to create something paper crafty too.  Have a great Sunday and we'll see you back here next week.

Thanks for stopping by!
