Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Daring Cardmakers challenges us to create a card using black and one other colour. Well, I LOVE black, so I jumped all over this!
The first card teams black with Cool Caribbean. I used my new swirly-flower and words from the Simply Stated set by Fancy Pants. I embossed the swirly-flower with clear EP. I inked the Fancy Pants chipboard paisley pieces in black and tempting turquoise.



For this card, I embossed the solid flower image with clear EP, and embossed the line flower image with white EP. I LOVE how it looks! I also embossed the word adore with black EP. I added the ribbon, and embossed a smaller flower with white EP then cut it out and stuck in a black brad. This is my favourite card, but not sure if white constitutes "another colour"?

Wow Michelle! I LOVE this card. I stands out from a distance. These are the kinds of cards that truly need to be published *wink*
