Hello everyone,

Today's card is born of two challenges - Eat Sleep Stamp provided an excellent sketch, while Color Chef Challenge provided the paper and ink selection of black, kraft and blue.

The card base is from Recollections. The paper is all Stampin' Up Basic Black, Kraft and Whisper White. All the Kraft elements are textured with Cuttlebug's Spots and Dots. The image, Hero Arts Pop Stems, is stamped in Stampin' Up Night of Navy and highlighted with Dark Blue Stickles. The sentiment is Gina K Tag, You're It!
I don't often do colour challenges but have decided I need to explore some new challenges. It is also very rare for me to use Kraft paper. I never think much of Kraft paper when I first look at it or as I start putting elements together but once the card is made, I find it striking. I couldn't resist this image when I found it. I could imagine so many interesting possibilities, especialy with all those circles just crying out for Stickles!
Please enjoy and come back to SPI again soon.
