A Splash Of Color---A Krafty Girls Challenge

Hi Everyone!
Happy Tuesday!
Are you guys ready for another awesome challenge starting today at

Challenge #11 is all about a Splash of Color---Create a paper project that is black and white and just a pop or splash of one other color.

I decided to make a card that I can send anytime of the year for my project.

I love bees. At least the cute paper ones, the real ones...not so much. haha!

For my card, I created a portrait style card base and added a black layer and then the top white layer. I used a border punch along the bottom of my top layer and dry embossed the top portion of the card with my cuttlebug. I stamped my sentiment and added a cute black and white polka dot ribbon bow and then attached it to my card base. My bee was cut out of the Sentimentals cricut cartridge at 2.5" and popped it up with some foam adhesive. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation! I really appreciate it! Don't forget to stop by the Krafty Girls blog to see more inspiration from the design team! I hope you will join us and enter the challenge, I look forward to seeing what you create!
