Black & White Butterflies

I finally getting to play along with a CAS-ual Fridays challenge.  It's been so long since I've participated.  Since the icy weather has cancelled our weekend plans, I have some crafty time!  Gotta stay positive:)

The challenge this week was to use only black and white -- not even another speck of color.



Here's what I made.



I had the hardest time getting a decent photo of this that showed the embossing on the black strip.  Sorry for the poor picture.  The fact that it's an ugly, gray, icy day here doesn't help.

For this card I just used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and my Black & White Basics patterned paper from Papertrey.  The black strip is embossed with one of those thin Cuttlebug folders from the With Love set.

What a great challenge!  Have a wonderful weekend.







All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:  Enjoy the Ride
Paper:  white & black cs, Black & White Basics pp
Ink:  black (memento)
Other:  MS butterfly punch, with love embossing folder (provo craft)

This is lovely Sara. I love the different papers and the touch of embossing. Did the show choir competition get cancelled?

This is so pretty. I like how you used so many different patterned papers--but all black and white. And, it must be the California sun, because I can see your embossing just fine.
