Hello and welcome! We have a new challenge on Seize the Birthday blog. The challenge is to make birthday projects, and you also have the option of using a ‘Topping’ that is given in every challenge. And the ‘Topping’ this time is ‘Black and White only’.
Its truly a challenge to not have any colors except black and white in a card for me! I was tempted the whole way to add at least a small sequin in another color. Red! Purple?? Gold! Well, I held it all off! 😀
I used Spellbinders Persian Accent, die cut several pieces, adhered them, then arranged them on the opposite pieces of the black card base. The sentiment comes from Mama Elephant Ella & Friends. I just added a few clear rhinestones for embellishment.
With this card I am joining the following challenges –

Yes I agree just Black and White is tough at times..but the effect is so elegant !! I loved how beautiful those die-cuts look on black ! Adding colored sequin would have taken the focus away from them 🙂
Totally agree! I am glad I held back!! 😀
This is a perfect way to use black and white – such a classy card!
Thank you Lindsey!
Beautiful elegant card, love it.
Thank you so much Aileen!

Thank you Cathy! Glad you liked it!
But love all the color in your photo shoot 😉 You did a great job with B/W. The shapes add such interest.
Ha ha! I added color on purpose! Thanks for the kind words!
This is so stunning as is…so glad you refrained from adding color…LOl. I think it would have been great but love the starkness of the black and white here! Well done once again!
Thank you so much Nancy! Makes me feel proud of myself! 😆
A very elegant and striking design. The reflected symmetry of the design works so well. 🙂
