Black Tie Affair - BC 50

That's what this card reminds me of. Not that I've ever been to one, mind you. But a girl can imagine can't she?

It is week 50 for the Blogger's Challenge group and the challenge this week was to create a card in black and white only. I picked up this flocked paper by The Paper Company at Michael's last week and it was perfect for this challenge. I stamped the sentiment from Heidi Grace Designs, cut it out, adhered it to Bazzill card stock and added self-adhesive pearls to the corners. I couldn't find the wide black ribbon I was looking for so I went with three different ones. If one is good, three has got to be great, right?

I can't believe it's Friday already. It is a very special Friday too. It's my daughter's birthday! Happy Birthday Andrea!!


My precious baby girl is turning 30 today. Now how can I possibly be the mother of a 30 year old?





It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: The Paper Company
Stamps: Heidi Grace Designs

Ink: Palette Noir Black
Accessories: Foam Squares, Pearls, Ribbon
Tools: Scor-pal
