Vice Versa

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with The Card Concept. This is an amazing challenge from them. I just love the colors and photo inspiration. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The contrast from the black and white stripes makes this card
especially striking.
The flowers help to soften up the card. 
Detail shot showing the lined up sentiment and flowers.


Challenges Entered:


This two toned sentiment technique may look a bit familiar. Papertrey Ink did an excellent tutorial on how to do this. I have provided the link here... I have had it stashed in my memory for awhile now and thought now would a good time to use it.  You can do so many things with two toned sentiments technique.. It doesn't have to be black and white. You can use a monochromatic color palette or design with complimentary colors, or split complimentary colors.. The possiblies are just endless. I think I am going to have use this again for another challenge.

Well that should do it for me. I hope you had a good stay at TheGrandStampede and I hope to see  you soon. Until then take care and keep crafting my friends.

All the best,
Shawna
