Black White and a Splash of ............

Burgundy.  That's this week challenge over at Play Date Cafe.  Here is the fabulous inspirational photo
Isn't that just gorgeous.  I just love challenges with Black and White and a splash of colour.... they are so much fun.

So here's what I came up with
PDCC #53


I have had this little Inkadinkado stamp for a while now but it's never been stamped so broke it out and stamped it twice... once on white card and once on the burgundy bazzil - cut out the cardinal and popped him with tiny pop dots over the black and white.  Cut the image with a square nestibility and mounted it onto the burgundy scallop.   Add the ribbon and sentiment by Stamp-it.  I quite like stamping my sentiments straight onto the card.... gives a more clean look I think.   All in all, I am pleased how this turned out.  My original thoughts were to use a butterfly cut out with my new Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch - got it today and the Burgundy bazzil, but changed my mind.... maybe I'll work on the other idea tomorrow at stamping group.  Some of us are meeting round at Glenda's for a day's stamping.  Have the butterfly double punched already to go!!!

Off to pack the bag ~  trying to think what I'll need.

Enjoy the weekend all..
Ciao for now
