Black Tie Friday #10 and Sunday Stamps #24


Several of my fellow Close To My Heart consultants are promoting this relatively new challenge blog site called Black Tie Fridays.  This is the 10th challenge and they are hoping to have 10 players this week.  The challenge is to use black and a diecut--neutral shades of beige are also allowed.  I followed the Sunday Stamps #24 sketch this week which I really like.  The patterned paper is retired Silhouette from Close To My Heart.  The medallion was cut with the Artiste cartridge--accent 3, page 56 at 2.25".  The stamp is from Salutation Seals.  A piece of Silver Shimmer Trim goes underneath the center panel with a thin strip of the Silhouette paper.  Licorice Opaque Adhesive Gems adorn the top left and bottom right corners.






A second version of this card has a silver metallic ribbon punch with the licorice gems.  Which do you like better?

Here is the Sunday Stamps sketch #24:




Thanks for stopping by!  Please consider playing along with these 2 challenge sites.  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
