LOVE

I'm back again today, this time with a bold design.

Love my pearls!  (get it?)
I wrapped four challenges in one for this black and white card.


  • CAS-ual Fridays - use only Black and White in honor of penguins everywhere!
Glad I was able to do this card in under a half hour, and spent only a little time more for photo editing and blogging.  Whew!

Thought I'd throw in some pictures of Cristabel, since she's black (with just touches of white):
