Thinking of You Papercraft Star Challenge

This card was created for the Papercraft Star Challenge 56.  This week was to use the given photo as your inspiration.  Well, this one was a tough one for me. Do you ever have those colors you just avoid like the plague?  For me I'm not too friendly with the colors Yellow and Black:  however I do love me a challenge!  When I struggle with colors I find that keeping it simple works for me, which is what I tried to do with this card.  One of my favorite things to do with a large petal flowers is edge them with Stickles.  For this one I used silver. I then added a button to the center.    The background was created by stamping an image from a stamp set called "Doodle This", by SU.  For the sentiment I used a Whisper White craft ink and stamped right onto the black ribbon.  I then added a border punched strip to the center along with a bow and called done!  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and thanks for taking the time to stop by:)


Stamps:  Doodle This, Three Little Words by SU
Ink:  Tuxedo Black by Memento
Paper:  Basic Black cardstock, Shimmer White cardstock by SU
Embellishments:  Paper flower, edge punch by EK Success, black satin ribbon
