what's black and white and red all over?

a newspaper..... which was sort of what inspired this card. I love the newsprint DSP that Stampin' Up! has, but haven't gotten around to ordering it yet, so I pulled out some retired Night and Day DSP to create this card for another sister in law's birthday. I also used the Frost White Shimmer Paint and a sponge dauber to create the shimmery white texture on the black scallop circle.


Stamps: Fast and Fabulous
Inks: Basic Black, Real Red
Papers: Night and Day DSP, Basic Black, Whisper White
Misc: Stamp-a-ma-jig, 5/8" White Organza Ribbon, Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die, Circles #2 Die, Dimensionals

I am off to enjoy the warm weather outside before it goes away again. There isn't too much better than playing with lots of kids outside on a beautiful day. We have a few of the cousins over for a sleepover and are having a blast, and taking lots of pictures to scrapbook later when it's not so nice out anymore.

This is so pretty and understated. I love that it's monochromatic with that pop of red. Beautiful.
