Dies R Us Challenge #47~"Black & White"

Unfortunately, I had to remove the Mr. Linky at the bottom. I was informed that us designers cannot put the linky on our personal blogs. So should you want to join this challenge, Please click the links in my post! I hope you do participate, it's a fun one!

Hello sweet friends! 
Welcome to a new challenge at Dies R US and I sure hope that your day is going well. This is my very first design team challenge so I'm excited to share with you what I created! So with that being said, here it is!


The theme for this challenge is "Black & White" with the option to use an additional pop of color. I chose to use that extra pop of color and decided on a very beautiful cream color. I used the Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Blushing Rose Dies, and the Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Curled Vines Dies which can be found in the Dies R Us store HERE , as the focal for my card. This card was made for my mother for Mother's Day. The solid cardstock is from American Crafts and the patterned paper is from Me & My Big Ideas. The card is a standard A2 size. I did emboss my white layers with an Anna Griffin folder and the stamp set used is from the "Say it from the heart" stamp set by 3 Twenty Crafts. 

Well that is all I have for you today my friends. I appreciate you for taking time out of your day to visit me and see what I am up to. Please don't forget to stop by the Dies R US challenge blog to see what the rest of my design team sisters have created for you today. And make sure to link up your own project too!
