Ebony and Ivory

Hello, I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend. Here is something I worked on this weekend while I had some time to be creative. I have been wanting to do something black and white, but have been kind of hesitant to try. I have been following Kelly Lunceford's blog "Flutter by Atomic Butterfly" and I really love the vintage cards she creates. I decided to try my hand at one, in black and white. Here is the finished product! what do you think ? I used SU paper in Black, Very Vanilla, and River rock. I stamped the River Rock paper with SU's French Script (retired) . The sentiment "sweet" is also Stampin Up, but I can't remember the set off hand. For the border, I used the scalloped punch. The black and white paper is non-SU , from Creative Imaginations. The ribbon was taken from my stash, as were the buttons. I really love the little red Rose button I used for the middle of the bow. I thought it was so sweet and I wanted to use it somehow in my design. Hence, the red accents.

I hope to be able to post something at least every couple of days, but I'm just learning the ropes on the computer, and I need quite a bit of help. My DH is helping me , but since he does computer work all day , I try to find a time when he is not to tired to help me. I know I exasperate him by being so slow to learn stuff. It is second nature for him, so It must be torture trying to teach me! LOL! Well, tomarrow is the start of another work day, so I better get to bed. Thanks for stopping by!
