Well, it's Friday the 13th, so thanks for stopping by for another FFF. This weeks theme was from Jen it was to use only black and white on a card. Here is what I came up with. I started this challenge by looking through my pattern paper and amazingly found this black and white paper. From there my mojo took over.

To make this card I started by cutting the pattern paper to 4"x5.25". Then I cut my card base from black cardstock to make an A2 size card. Next I stamped the sentiment on plain white cardstock using black versafine ink. Then I cut it to size and matted it on black carstock. Then I wrapped a piece of black ribbon around the front of the pattern paper and glued it on the back. I then glued the pattern paper to the center of the card base. Then I glued the matted sentiment to the center of card. Next I glued a white prima flower on top of a larger black prima flower and glued it to the upper left corner of the sentiment. I then added stickles to the center of the flower and the word birthday. Then let the stickles dry. VIOLA!

Supplies: stamp by Paper Inspirations, pattern paper by DCWV, cardstock by Archivers, ribbon by Bobbie M. Designs, black Stickles, Prima flowers.

I think this card is perfect for a birthday card for a girlfriend. Who doesn't love flowers? Well, I hope you are planning on playing along for some blog candy!

With it being Friday the 13th and all I was curious if any of you are superstitious? I am about a few things. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I can't wait to hear from you and hopefully see some of your creations.

Happy Crafting,

Wow, what an elegant card. I have so much trouble with black and white cards that I avoid it at all costs. Kim Prince challenged me to do a black and white card so I copped out by finding a black and white image on line which I used. Such a simple challenge, but one that perplexes someone who goes bright and bold. I can't wait to see you next week. It's been far too long!!
