JUST ADD BLACK & WHITE #71

Join me this week at JUST ADD INK for a real challenge - Just add black and white only!  I thought it would be fun to leave all colour in the draw to see what we could all come up with. 
The design team have made some beautiful samples to share with you this week, so be sure to pop over and have a look.  Better yet - join in the fun with your own creation!

I had a lot of fun putting together this week card and as we speak - it is in the hands of fellow Just Add Ink Designer who celebrated her birthday yesterday.

I not only created the card, but a broach to be worn too!  Which is why I have kept the card pretty simple.  I wanted the broach to be the star of the show, with it's laquered look and bit of bling.  I have also added an insert, because these always finish a card beautifully.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for yesterday Delys - I hope you got this in time and in one piece!  **MWAH**

  1. I love black & white. There's a simple elegance to it. Beautifully done and I love that broach! Please share how you achieved the look. Heat embossing? Crystal Effects? No fair keeping secrets! Hugs!
