I colored her with Copics and all of the cutting of the trees and grass was with Zoo Balloon and my trusty Cricut. Since the theme was camping, I thought it would be make a tent card. These look really dramatic, but are really simple to do. This is my DT card for We only had a few entries last week, so you have a really good change of winning.

Crow- Black and white seem to be all the rage on many of the challenge blogs this week.
I love this image from the new Wall Decore and more cartridge. This cartridge surprised me. I didn't think I would use it very much; but now that I have really looked over the images, it is my new favorite cartridge. The images are simple, yet elegant. It also has a terrific font. The embossing is with my Cuttlebug. #54 black, white, and one other color (red) #70 black, white and a splash of red.

raining buttons

Raining Buttons - I am trying out for a DT and the challenge was to use black, white and gray only. I wanted to show them that I can do more than cards; so I have posted some album pages as well. The photos are from my daughter, Jennifer's wedding. Wasn't she a beautiful bride?
The card uses a Greeting Farm stamp, what was colored with Copics. The buttons and ribbon flower are from Michael's. The paper is from a black and white pad that I have had for ages. The gemstones were in a surprise package that I recieved from Susana's Custom art and card design. Love her stuff.
For the wedding pages I used some vellum quotes that I bought several years ago. The black scrolly squares and white scrolly triangles are cut with a Cuttlebug die. The banner/horns were cut with my Cricut. This was one of the icons for Sleeping Beauty, Page 52, in the Disney Happily Ever After cartridge.
The challenge blog that I am trying out for is Check them out and put in a good word for me.
