Red, White and Black

This week I am submitting a card for the challenge at Joan's Gardens. It's a fun one, using vellum and the colors red, white and black.  Here are the requiremnts:

  • Make a flower using vellum
  • Use colors Red, Black and White
  • Use die cut border
  • Use a seniment
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens
  • Also, mention that you are doing the card/project for Joan's Gardens Challenge

When there is a requirement of using black, I always have to figure out how to use it without making the card look dreary and sad.  Too much black can be a depressing thing; you don't want to use a lot on a birthday card or wedding or anniversary card, and you surely do not want to use too much on a sympathy card.  So I have attempted to make a cheery birthday card here using the color requirements using some discontinued papers of red and black which I had in my stash, and a printed out birthday sentiment from my computer. The vellum flower is surrounded by white foliage and topped off with a clear rhinestone.

Here are the products I used, which you can get at Joan's Gardens:

  • Cheery Lynn:  Dancing Doily Lace Border
  • Spellbinders:  Foliage, S4-328; Whimsy EF, ES-004; Moroccan Accents, S5-064; Aster Flower Topper, S5-102; Layered Flowers, S4-355
  • Nellie Snellen:  SD-002

Here is the card:
