Playdate Cafe Colour Challenge

This is my second post of the day, although I made this card last night. Here is this week’s “splash”: Lilac (or any shade of purple). We are to create a project using Black & White with a ‘splash’ of lilac/purple. Wow – I rarely use lilac, or any purple, really. “This is going to be interesting”, I said to myself! I knew I had some black and white patterned paper and some images with shades of gray, so that was my starting point. I loved all of the beautiful samples shown in the blog post, and wanted to keep my card fairly simple, yet classy (if I could pull it off). I also used the sample image in the post as my other inspiration. Here is what I came up with:

So, here is what I used to pull my card together:

Card Stock – 110 lb. white Strathmore, Basic Black (SU)
Patterned Paper – DCWV
Stamp – sentiment from SU’s “All Holidays” set
Ink – Versafine Black Onyx
Accessories – SU oval punches, nestabilities fancy labels, heart charm, lilac ribbon, copic marker (to colour one of the roses)

Thanks for having a look today!
