Black, White and Sparkly

Challenge #2
When I think of New Years Eve Celebrations, I tend to think of the colors Black, White or Vanilla and some SHINY accents or paper (metallic, glitter). Make a card using these colors ~ ANY theme!
SCS Keyword: JBENYE2

What's black, white and sparkly all over :) My challenge 2 card that is!! This was definitely a challenge for me because I love using color. However, I had a lot of fun with this card and I absolutely love how it turned out. I used Basic Grey Ambrosia paper. The Prima Clear Panda Stamp was inked up and stamped out twice. I cut out his little head and raised it with a dimensional. Then I went a little overboard and covered all the main black areas with Black Diamond Stickles. Trust me, it is good and sparkly!!! The sentiment comes from Papertrey Ink's Floral Frenzy. It is also raised with a dimensional. To add just a touch more shimmer and sparkle to the card, I tied on some black grosgrain with a May Arts Sheer Silver Twinkle Ribbon and added some Imaginisce Hallowhimsy Glitter black brads. I've used those brads so much lately and not just on Halloween cards. They match the Black Diamond Stickles perfectly! I used Mojo 66 for the layout.


I also have some BLOG CANDY to give away.
