Play Date Cafe Color Splash

I love playing in The Play Date Cafe challenges.  I just made the deadline with this card.
The current challenge, #40, is to use black and white with a splash of green

The inspiration photo.

I used a sketch from the magazine Paper Crafts' Go to Sketches, page 36.

Other challenges I entered:
Close up pix of silver balls.

It's past midnight.  I've made cards all throughout today.  I am very tired.  What's that, Pillow?  Here I come!


Stamps:  Close to My Heart topiary; sentiment from All Holidays (SU)
Paper:  white from PTI, designer paper from My Mind's Eye
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black for image; Basic Black from SU for sentiment
Other:  paper piercer, Copic markers, ribbon and Bow Easy from Sharon Johnson's No Time to Stamp, dimensionals, silver ball stickers, Aleene's Tacky Glue
