It's Time For A Stamp Simply Challenge!

You all know how much I love Sharon Johnson! When I first found her challenges I was so excited...you know I tend to overthink and make things much harder than they need to be! How refreshing to 'Stamp Simply'. You know that simple or not, Sharon's creations are always beautiful! That's one talented cookie!

This weeks challenge is to use black as an accent to a card. Ooohhhh....I knew I loved this one when I heard it! I pulled out an oldie stamp...but one of my favorite oldie stamps for this one....

This is from the Laundry Notes stamp set from Stampin' Up! Do you guys remember this one? I knew when I saw it I had to have it! Retired or not, I just don't think I can part with this one. It's a fav. I colored it with my copic markers and for the flowers on the legs I used my spica pens....so there is a bit of sparkle...but the photo of course doesn't do that part justice...Throw in some flower fusion and then add some black card stock to my decorative paper and black buttons, brads, and gems to my flowers and voila! Love how that black makes the whole thing just pop! What an awesome challenge!

I took a closeup so that you could read the sentiment. What a riot! ...still can't really see the glitter though....***shrugging my shoulders...what do you do?

For more inspiration check out the rest of Sharon's Stamp Simply Team. Wowza! They're just gorgeous!
