The Paper Variety - Kiss of Color Challenge

Hey hey!  Posts on two consecutive days!!  I decided it was time to spend a full day in my craft room before going back to work tomorrow. Why is it when I have the time to spend working on projects, the ideas just don't come as easily as they do when I'm busy working or otherwise not able to play? I was only able to get three things done today - but hopefully more ideas will flow soon!

To jump start my creativity, I looked through my favorite blog sites to find a challenge to work on. I landed on The Paper Variety who is holding a Kiss of Color Challenge.  For this challenge, you need to create a project using primarily black and white with just a "kiss" of color.  Want to join in?  You can find all the details at The Paper Variety HERE.

Here is the card I created using the challenge rules:

I wanted to keep this one simple so I could finish something quickly and keep going on other projects.  This is a simple 6 x 6 card using black and white Bazzil paper, stamps from Fiskars, and red ribbon from Offray.  (black ink from Memento, and red marker from Marvy)

See ya soon!
