Papertrey January Blog Hop


I absolutely love cards that are made using black!  It just makes colors pop.  Black backgrounds are no exception, so I just had to play along with PTI this month.



I heat embossed images from Dot Spot in white and then added some sparkle with red rhinestones.  For the birthday banner, I lightly colored the die cut with my C1 Copic marker while still in the die.

Happy Hopping!
