Color Throwdown #496 - Black, White, & Aqua

Hello friends.  Another FUN challenge at the Color Throwdown where the colors this week are Black, White, & Aqua.

Now that photo definitely says SUMMER, doesn't it?!!  I had a new stamp from Impression Obsession that makes me think SUMMER too, so that was my starting point for my card.

Isn't that just the sweetest image of the little boy and girl on the bicycle together?!!  

I kept my card pretty CAS and after stamping the image in Versafine Black Onyx ink, I added a strip of black and white stripes (PTI) and a die cut border in Aqua from PTI's Super Star.  

You can see better in this close up that I added Elizabeth Crafts Super Fine Glitter on the insides of the stars to add a little bling!  I also added a few of the tiny stars from the centers of the border randomly around the card and sentiment which is from PTI's Penned Elegance.

Check out all the amazing Black, White, & Aqua cards from the DT to get inspired and then play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  2. Ahhhhhhhh, what a fantastic card design, Marcia! It makes me long for the carefree days of childhood when we were truly children doing nothing more than riding our bikes with the wind blowing our hair straight back! So cooling when it was hot and muggy! Thank you for the trip down memory lane!! Hugs, Darnell
