Play Date Cafe Challenge #91

Hi Everyone!  Miss me?  ha ha ha....

I've been away for a while for several reasons. I've been working on a couple invitation orders that took some time, I've been ill, and ... most of all... I needed a short break.  Seems my creativity needed a short vacation.  But - now it's time to get back into the swing of things; try some new challenges, and get ready for this year's Scrapbook Expo crop nights in August. Two days of cropping from 8:00 am to Midnight! Of course, with some shopping at the vendor hall mixed in!

So, I worked on a few challenges today, and I'll be posting them over the next few days. The first one is from The Play Date Cafe. The challenge is to make a card using only black/white and one additional color. Funny how something that would normally seem so simple gets challenging when you're forced to work within certain parameters! :)  You can find more on this challenge (and their other challenges) HERE.

Here is my take on the challenge!

Recipe: Black&White background from American Crafts; all other card stock from my scrap stash; piano, flourishes, sentiment cut from Quarter Note cartridge; ribbon from scrap stash; black pearl from unknown manufacturer. Finished card is 5x5.

Take Care!
