Mojo Monday Friendship card - Black, White and Grey CTMH Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Sometimes I discover that the sketches that appear to be challenging....turn out to be the easiest and quickest for me!

Yesterday's Think Ink Tuesday Challenge took me about 20 minutes (as opposed to my usual hour or longer) to whip out.

The same goes for this Mojo Monday sketch!  Those little rectangular elements threatened to stump me...but victory is mine!    mwaahhhaaaaahaaaaaaaaaa!!

I used nearly all CTMH textured cardstock for this lovely sketch. The black cardstock is actually grey on the backside, so I only used a piece of textured black and some regular white daisy.  

I really love this new stamp set - One of a Kind.  There are several botanical leaves, flowers and stems. Perfect for tiny 3x3 cards-I'm working on some of those right now.  I used my small and large circle Nestabilities die templates - I'll be using a lot more of those now that I'm on the Spellbinders(TM) Design Team!  woooHHOO!!  And I snuck in another one of those super-cute prima gems at the end of the white strip punched with a Martha punch.  No ribbon - no buttons - no flowers - that's pretty clean and simple for me!

Update on the pizza story - Alan said it was not so good.  He tried making a second batch of dough and it was a little better. I forsee a bread-making lesson when he's home for spring break!

Happy hump day!

Love it, Deb! It's so striking.

Too bad about the pizza dough, but I'll bet the bread-making lesson will be fun.

Take care!

Deb, I can't count how many times I've come back to look at this card. It is so simple, yet elegant and stunning.

I love using black and any colour....I'll have to go play!

Thanks for the inspiration!
