A background challenge, a sketch challenge, and a color challenge ... wrap them all into one, and get .... well, my project. :)

I'm submitting to th
Stampin' Sisters In Christ challenged us to do a black and white card.

365 Cards challenged us to do a background challenge - 1/2 polka dots, 1/2 solid color

Critter Sketch Challenge had the sketch for today's project.

So ... here it is. :)

The polka dot folder was inked before I ran it through the Cuttlebug, making the polka dot background here. I distressed that layer, as well, to give a little more texture to the card. Black and white certainly is striking, isn't it?? I loved working with this sketch, too. Such fun!!

Card Recipe :
stamps - Seasonal Swags
paper - bubble gum, lime juice, white
ink - black
copics - 100, 0, G85, G99, G00, R85
accessories - Cricut, SCAL, Seasonal Swags svg file, glassy glaze, pop dots, crystals
technique - CAS

Tomorrow, another challenge card! Can't wait to share it with you.

Have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
