Dare to be Sassy Thursday Challenge

WOW it's going to be a BUSY day today!!!

It's Thursday and that means it's time for another DARE TO BE SASSY THURSDAY CHALLENGE over at Sassy Studio Designs.  The challenge today is to use Black & White with a Pop of Color.  I'm still having fun as their May Guest Designer, and . . .

. . . what fun I had creating this card with Charlotte Sassy as the main focus.  She was so much fun to color too!  Most times for a challenge like this I would use RED or PINK for the pop of color but I stepped outside the box today and used GREEN!  As you can tell, I'm STILL practicing with my alcohol markers and I need to try some different base paper to get a better blending I think!  For the inside of my card I simply used the scraps that were left from the front ... easy-peasy and yet classy I think.

I hope you'll come join our challenge fun this week and wait until you see what the team came up with to inspire you ... WOW!  what a talented group!

A few additional challenges:
Stamp n Doodle - Anything Goes
Stampotique Designers Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you're having a wonderful day!  
As always . . .

Thank you for joining the LEJ Designs Challenge #53 - Borders and/or Corners over on our blog.
What a really striking card. The image is great against that ribbon striped diecut backing. The greens with the black and white look so great together. Love the basic corners and the green pearls really finish the card perfectly.

I hope you will join us for more of our weekly challenges. There are always gorgeous LEJ Designs images up for grabs as well as extras from our sponcers.
