The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Hello my friends!

Time again for a fun challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!  
Today Micki is our host and she has asked us to make a card/project using this theme:

Black, White + One Accent Color

This is always a fun challenge in my book ... here's what I came up with.

 OKAY ... so the color is a little on the BRIGHT side but it's really cute in person and you must admit, it does GET YOUR ATTENTION!  LOL!  I recently made an online Jo-Ann's purchase (50% off) and got two fabulous Fiskars Stamp Sets (20 clear stamps in each set) and this sentiment came from the 'Laugh With Me Quotes' set.

Recipe for this card:
Papers:  White cs, Lime Green cs
Accessories:  Marianne LR0236 (green layer), Spellbinder Gold Labels Four (white layer), Michaels 'Celebrate It' satin ribbon, Bow Easy, White Gelly Roll Pen for faux stitching

This 2nd card is actually one of the cards from a set I made for a friend of my mother.  I tried to keep them relatively simple so they wouldn't require additional postage. 

Recipe for my card:

Papers:  White cs, Black cs, Scrap of SU design paper
Stamp/Ink:  SU Retired Elegant Greetings/SU Blue Bayou
Accessories:  Marianne LR0235 die set, Cheery Lynn Designs B165 Lace Corner Deco E dies

I hope you'll come join in our fun at The Sisterhood and be watching for some new fun ideas coming to The Sisterhood in the very near future!  And if your mojo is lacking and you need more inspiration ... be sure to pop over and see what the 'Sistah's have to share today!
