Blogger's Challenge - week 50

Hi all!

I'm going to be very quick today....flu has hit me hard this week! I thought I was feeling better yesterday...today not so good!

The challenge this week was black and white. I can do that, right? It was harder than I thought...I wanted to add a touch of color here...silver there....argh!!!! I did add bling....hopefully I didn't break any challenge laws :) hehe!

here it is:


recipe:
stamps: dare to be fabulous, sanded, holidays and wishes
card stock, basic black, whisper white
ink: basic black, black craft
accessories: mat pack and piercer, stampin dimensionals, iridescent ice embossing powder, heat tool, vintage brads (black) (I can't believe I didn't use ribbon!!! lol!)

well...that's it folks.....gotta lay on the air conditioner vent!
