Black and white elegant....

Hi everybody, it's Tuesday,  and the challenge at Play Date Cafe is due tonight. It's black and white with green. The dragonfly and the glitz really is green...I just couldn't get it any better than this.

The card is three layers of black and white print. All layers are matted with black. It looks very three dimensional and doesn't seem to need any other embellishments. I tend to like a lot of embellies, but sometimes the print is just too busy and too much...so I chose to leave it alone and leave it very simple.

I made the dragonfly by painting a transparency with alcohol inks then laying a Dazzle on the spot I wanted. Then, just cut out. I purchase my Dazzles from Paper Wishes and I love them. They are inexpensive and one sheet lasts a long time.

Last weekend was very frustrating. I didn't get a whole lot done on my scrapping and I was just kind of spinning my wheels. I had so much to do around the house and everything took twice as long as I hoped it would.
I still have a couple more cards I need to get ready for some challenges I want to enter. So hopefully, the week will go better than the weekend did.
I LOVE CHALLENGES!!! They really get my ideas rolling.

Enjoy your week.....be sure to love on the people God has given you.
