EAD Designs Color Challenge~Call Me!

*** This is my second post of the day...if you're looking for
My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday Challenge,
please scroll down***

Good Morning!   Welcome to EAD Design's Color Challenge!  Today's challenge is all about the black and white!  I have to say this is one of my favorite color combos, I wear it frequently!  However, I usually have a pop of color with it, so I had a hard time not adding a pop on my card!  lol

For today's card I used my favorite houndstooth from Teresa Collins, how could I not! :)


I first used My Creative Time XL Label die to cut out EAD's Vinyl stickerz sheet.  It cut it out beautifully!  I then cut a plain white sheet with the label die.  Once cut out I placed the cut sticker on the cut label.  Now here's the best part...it didn't match the first time I tried to stick them together.  But that's ok, because with EAD vinyl stickerz you can carefully pull them off the paper and try again.  Second try was perfect!!!  You just couldn't do that will all stickers! 

The other awesome thing about the newsprint vinyl sheet is, that it's printed on clear vinyl.  This way a color would show through!

recipe:
paper: Teresa Collins, Papertrey Ink, Recollections
tulle, embossing powder, pear

BEAUTIFUL!! It really is perfect the way it is, but I know what you mean about throwing in a pop of color.... I would have been dying to put maybe just one red or pink pearl in the center of the tulle!! LOL! I totally love the patterns you used together, I really need to get braver with my pattern usage. :)

That card is sooo beautiful. Just what I need, have a friend who needs a shoulder to lean on at the moment. Will be making this one to send to her. Love the touch with the pearl brad, gorgeous.
