Cute by the Inch -PDCC #97- Add a splash of red!

This wonderful challenge suited me really well as I needed to make 13 cards using a certain sketch for our deomonstrator swaps and I hoped to do a black and white card for something different.  I stumbled upon Play Date Cafe by looking through another friend's blog. I'm so pleased I found it and can't wait to do some of their challenges.

Challenge #97 was a Color Splash Week again using black and white, and a splash is RED. 

The stamp set I used for this is called Cute by the Inch and was a hostess set that retired just last month.  I stamped two different images onto Whisper White cardstock using Basic Black ink.  Then punched them out using the 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 square punches (IB&C p 154),which I then layered and stuck together with my snail.  I stuck them onto a Whisper White card base and attached some Basic Black grosgrain ribbon, making a bow and using a red brad as my splash of red. Simple but perfect!

Now I just have to make another 13 and my swaps are done!

Enjoy - Julie
