It's simply Black & White . . .

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday!

WOW!  Did you have those crazy winds yesterday?  It was frightening from time to time here in NE Ohio ... sometimes sounded like a freight train in the back yard.  Thankfully we didn't have any damage other than a few branches down and our power stayed on.  Others like my daughter & granddaughter had some wind damage and a lengthy power outage at their homes ... granddaughters power is still out last I heard!


Anyways ... I spotted a Black & White challenge over on Cupcake Inspiration (#565) and thought I'd share a couple wedding cards I created a few days ago which were requested by a friend.  For both cards, I've used a Sue Wilson die for the sentiment and Lisa Horton 3D embossing folders. 

A few tiny diamond gems were added here & there on each card. 
A wedding card should ALWAYS have a touch of sparkle somewhere!  lol

I think simply black & white is perfect for any wedding card ... there something elegant in it's simplicity!

Other challenges to share in:
613 Avenue Create March Challenge - ATG + CAS
Cut It Up Challenge #274 - Add Embellishments (gems + die cut sentiment)
Just Add Ink Challenge #645 - NO Stamping

Here's wishing you a FABULOUS week ahead!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by ... I truly appreciate it!


  1. I love the classic black and white colour combo Darlene! So elegant! Such a perfect look for your gorgeous cards. The embossing folders that you used really make such a statement on your cards. Just stunning! Thanks for playing along this week and joining in at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo

  2. So beautiful and elegant. Love, love that embossing folder. Lena xx

  3. Beautifully elegant Darlene. Thank you for sharing at Just Add Ink. Nikki-JAI design team.

  4. Black and white can be so beautiful as you've clearly shown here. These 3D folders sometimes shine their best in simple white. It reminds me of plaster art which I do love a lot. I'm glad you made it through the wind okay. It's been a while since we had a very strong wind here. I'm feeling for the folks in Mississippi who were hit so hard by the tornado.

  5. Beautiful classic cards. Perfect for a Wedding occasion. Chantell Just Add Ink

  6. Both are lovely. I really like the simplicity and the subtle addition of the gems. Thank you for joining our Cut it Up Add Embellishments challenge.
