Black and White and Red All Over

Hello stampers!

What a wonderful weekend!  I got to play in the dirt this weekend and planted my "container garden".  This year, so far, I've planted tomatoes, peppers, and lettuce.  This is the first year for lettuce in containers.  I can't wait to see how it does.

I also had some time for a little stamping!  Today's card is for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge, FMS181.  This week's challenge is from Jen:


And here is my card:



The card base is Whisper White.  The black and white image  panel is from the Love Story Project Life Card Collection (#135208) and is attached to a black panel cut and embossed with the Small Stitched Rectangle Dies from Lawn Fawn.  The flower, from the Petal Potpourri set (#138586) is highlighted with Wink of Stella Brush in Clear.  The center of the flower is an Itty Bitty Accent Epoxy Sticker (#137856) on a piece of black card stock.





Finally, a piece of Real Red 1/4" Cotton Ribbon (#134563) is tied across the bottom of the card.

This is such a striking card - the black, white and pop of red is a fabulous color combo! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
