The Card Concept #20 - Boo, It's A Chandelier!

Hello!  It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept, and for the next two weeks, it's all about Black, Orange and White.  There's also a fabulous inspiration photo (see below my card), featuring a Halloween-ish buffet.  I was inspired by SO many things in the photo!


Here's the challenge pic:


Oh, the black and white gingham tablecloth!!  Love it.  I had this bow sitting in my black ribbon bag of scraps, and it's just perfect.  And see the candelabra on the table?  I thought a Chandelier stamp (Inkadinkado) would be a great focal point, since it has candles on it, as well.

Some retired Stampin' Up! patterned paper, a BOO sentiment (Autumn Apparitions / SU) and a few rhinestones were the finishing touches on this Classy & Elegant card.  (Remember, at The Card Concept, there are 6 defined styles in which to create...C & E is my designated style.)


I'm so glad you came by for a visit.  I hope you'll join us for the challenge!  Click HERE for all the details.



Stamps: Chandeliers - Inkadinkado; 'boo' - Autumn Apparitions - Stampin' UP! Paper: True Black, white - PTI; black & orange pattern, Pumpkin Pie - SU Ink: black - Inkadinkado Fibers: black and white gingham bow (taken from some packaging) Accessories & Tools: circle punch; rhinestones
