Black and White.....and Pink!


The challenge at Jitterbuggin' this week is to use black and white with one more color. I love black /white and pink! And what fit this better than the cute little skunk from Create a Critter. I followed the sketch with a 5" card....cut the small square at 3"....and added a 2 3/4" skunk (detailed with dimensional paint and gel pen). Then I added two great flowers that I learned how to do from my friend Kim Sparks' terrific site.....Sketches in Thyme. The flowers are made from a Martha Stewart circle punch (circles for PaperCraft Star)....added buttons, floss, and a pompon. Paper is old (this is for you Practical Scrappers....)DCWV Christmas 2008 stack.......I used strips of the patterned paper to create borders, along with a little help from some pinking shears. I hope this card doesn't "stink!"

I think Cricut could have just made the Create a Critter cartridge and be set for life. LOL EVERYBODY loves those critters. This is adorable and I love how you used circle punches to make your flowers. Thanks so much for playing along with us a Papercraft Star this week!

I also love black, white and pink and if it wasn't for having the black-eyed susan idea in my head I would have created something using pink with my entry.

Nice card!
