Back to the Basics!

I have really gotten back to the basics with this card. I have been tired of coloring for awhile but recently have found a ton of great SU demonstrator blogs and U-tube videos and samples on pinterest so I have really stepped back a bit from the really involved cards with lots of coloring and flowers and all of that. I have probably mentioned Brandys cards . She has the most awesome videos. This card I found one of her videos with a black and white card she did I loved but then I went and looked at the other cards. She did a black and white challenge. I found a different card and then I ended up wtih this card that was a little different then either one of the cards I was looking at. She did do a cool video also with a card box to go with it I may have to try to make.
I used the Delicate Doilies set (I think its called.) and stamped the top half of a white card base with my favorite black ink. Then the bottom half is a black strip ran thru the cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I then put some black and white polka dot ribbon and then one of my sincere salutations greetings (love that set) and stamped it in one of the frames from Four Frames set and used foam tape to attach it to the card. Just to give it some sparkle I added a few rhinestones to the centers of the large doilies but I dont think you can see it in these photos. I did matching envelopes also.
Those pretty flowers in the front are ones I found at Michaels today in their $1 bins but actually their $1 bins are now $1.50 bins. but you get about 12 of these flowers for that price and as you can see they are a nice size. I am thinking of a cool card for them. So we will see how that turns out.
So no designer papers for this card. Just black and white card stock some ribbon stamps, embossing folder and one color of ink.
I think these cards would be pretty in any color.
Happy Stamping!
