Stamping 411 Sketch for my SIL

Tomorrow is my SIL's birthday and I just got a card in the mail today - hopefully I am not in too much trouble.  I tried to take her tastes into account with this card.  Many of her decorative furnishings are black and they showcase marvelous pieces that she has collected in her world travels.  The photos on her walls are artistic black and white shots.  Thus...this card was developed...


It is based on this week's Stamping 411 Sketch.


I then realized how simple it was and thought I would try to "CASify" it!!  I think it works!  I'm going to add this to the Less Is More challenge to get 1000 entrants!

  • Stamps: Stampin' Up Tiny Tags and Well Scripted
  • Paper: 1) SU Black, Poppy, Vanilla First Edition dsp; 2) SU White, Pretty in Pink, Suede
  • Ink: black & suede
  • Accessories: Heidi Grace Cherry Stickers, Fiskars border punch, misc ribbons and embossing folders, also spray adhesive and glitter on the first card.
