It’s Sunday again and the CYCI #78 Challenge is to use Black, White and a Pop of Color.  Most of us wouldn’t have a problem with this challenge.  Why don’t you play along and enter your art creation at before noon this Friday…it’s a lot of fun!

Here’s my entry for this challenge…


This year Stampin’ Up! has out done itself with the Designer Series Paper Sets.  This one I’ve used is called Timeless Elegance.  It is beautiful.

  • The Basic Black layer is 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • The DSP layer is 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Attach the Basic Black layer to card front with adhesive.

The DSP is certainly the star of the show here.  I do like to color so this was a joy for me to create.

Hope you feel inspired to play along this week.  I’ll be looking for your creation.

If you are inky…you MUST be HaPpY!



    • Thank you for your sweet comment Marlene. I hope you stop by often and always feel inspired…B

  1. Thanks so much for pointing out this DSP. I love that it can be colored a little or a lot. Love your card with the pop of red. All the elements are so clever to make a beautiful card.

    • Thanks HJ. This year SU! Has some really pretty DSP. I think it’s hard to judge it though by the photos in the catalog. This one Timeless Elegance is definitely a winner!…B
