Black & White Christmas

Today's Ramblings: Good morning! 'Tis the last day of March! And it's almost the weekend - yay!! Plus it's payday - and who doesn't like payday!

Well, I am pretty proud of myself: I made my 5 Christmas cards for the month. I have been working non-stop, and squeaked in my last two this week.

I had a vision of a non-colored digi, and the rest of the card to be black and white.

I used the beautiful digi, Red Cardinal {found here}:

I based my whole card around my black and white houndstooth ribbon, only to realize I didn't have enough :( So I went with the only solid black ribbon I had - sheer. Me and sheer ribbon do not get along LOL!

Card Ingredients:
Delicious Doodles digi; Recollections and Making Memories papers; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Celebrate It ribbon; button; hemp twine.

I made this Christmas card for the following challenges:

Well my friends, have a wonderful day and if I don't see you until Monday, have a wonderful weekend!!

Very nice! There is something to be said for the simplicity of black and white - it's always appealing. Your card looks great!
