Color My Heart - Color Dare Guest Designer

I am so honoured to be asked to be a guest designer over at Color My Heart.  These ladies create amazing artwork each and every week, and schedule permitting, I try to enter as often as I can.

I was given the challenge to create a piece of artwork using Black, White and CTMH Green.  Well, CTMH has many greens, Sweet Leaf, Olive, New England Ivy, Pear, Ponderosa Pine and Topiary.  Which green would I choose?

Well, I decided to keep this a pretty Clean and Simple card.  I started with a Black cardbase measuring 5*7.  Next I ran some White Daisy through my cuttlebug.  I used some more Black to create a mat for my ribbon, and used the Scallop Border Punch to create the scallops on both top and bottom.  I coloured the Color-Ready Seam-Binding Ribbon using the Topiary Alcohol Markers.  Finally I used the Get Well sentiment from Sincere Expressions and stamped it in Topiary Ink.  It is matted on Black cardstock continuing the scalloped border on the mat.

Don't forget to visit Color My Heart to see the Design Team's work, and don't forget to get inky and link up to this challenge.
