Simply Stampin' challenge week 60

The theme this week at Simply Stampin' is MONOCHROME with a splash of COLOUR.  I used the SU Silhouette Sentiments stamp set to build up the image, stamping just one of the flowers in a bright pink for the splash of colour against the monochrome.  Background paper is from my stash - again a pad which has lost its cover so not sure of the source, a Memory Box die cut, some ribbon and a stamped sentiment complete this card. Do take a look at some of the lovely creations from the design team.


  1. This is really effective & I love the way those branches have been placed. The script background with the floral side panel makes a beautifully soft foil for the white image panel so that the eye is really drawn to that little bird & the pink flower. Nice one.
