Less is More Week 218 - Predominently Black

The current challenge over at Less Is More is 'Predominently Black'. That's not as scary as it sounds,  black needs to be prominent but you can add a pop of colour too. This is my entry:
I used:

- DL white card blank, tent style

- a 'frame' of black card stock

- white card stock onto which I stamped Indigo Blu's fabulous 'Juliet' stamp and just coloured a single flower in SU 'Melon Mambo'

- the sentiment was also stamped in 'Melon Mambo' using a stamps from LOTV's 'Quotables - Life's Journey' set

So quick to make - once I stopped dithering and running hither and thither, rootling through my craft stash before making a decision :) Len's favourite quote about me is 'Di used to be indecisive, but now she's not so sure' - sigh.

I hope you're all having a lovely Easter Weekend - we have glorious sunshine here, at last!

SO lovely!!!! You have just the right amount of red on here too. Great image and sentiment!
So sorry I haven't been around. Trying to catch up a little bit anyway and hopefully won't be too much of a stranger. Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers Di. Really means a lot to me!

Jean said...

Super card Di, I love the stamp and the red quote looks great.

Kathleen said...

Great choice of image and an even greater great choice of the red.
Unfortunately the sentiment is not at all true, I have been seeking Johnny Depp for years but I am certain that he is not seeking me.

Poor gal. It's going to take forever to get all the leaves and branches out of her hair.... It's a great card, but all I can think about is TANGLES (and not zen ones either). I love black and white with a pop of red!

Kimbo said...

Just beautiful Di, love the flower in her hair x

Chrissie said...
