Right Beside You

Hello Everyone,

It's time for Team B's challenge at 613 Avenue Create. This week, our challenge to you is to use black with your favorite color (or Anything Goes if you don't want to do the challenge). Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps and I am using their stamp Right Beside You silhouette.

I absolutely LOVE black and silver together. It's one of my all-time favorite looks for cards. For this card, it was really simple. I printed the image on white card stock. It has a small black box around it, but for some reason my printer would not print it straight, so I had to cut it away. I then added black card stock behind it to give the border back and mounted it on silver glitter card stock and then a black card stock base. I used a Sakura clear glitter gel pen to add shimmer all over the tree.  I added a silver bird dazzle from Hot Off the Press and then crystal bling in the upper right hand corner.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Outlawz Saturday Paper ala Mode - anything goes
Hiding in My Craft Room - anything but holiday
Inkspirational Challenge #46 - anything goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #38 - anything goes
Craft Little Fairies - anything goes

  1. Susan - love this card! So many details and yet such a CAS design! I like that you added the gel glitter to the tree - very creative! The sentiment is perfect for that image - and a very poignant one at that! You are definitely right about black and silver... elegant!
