Seize the Birthday Challenge

This challenge is all about black and white.

I adore black and white cards.  The colors just make your card elegant!

 
It also helps if you use pretty flowers :).  I used the standard go-to sketch that Yana Smakula talked about.  I do have to say, her post suggestion is one that I actually will use a lot.  [The first was Susan's Rule of Thirds] Getting a card layout is one of my struggles -- thanks to Yana's post, I won't struggle anymore! :)  

Meanwhile, I use a retired MFT stamp set for the flowers [Blooming Roses], and Altenew's Label Love for the sentiment.  I also used MFT's Fish Tail Banners, and Mini Doily.


Okay, your turn!  Come on over to the Seize the Birthday Challenge and play along.  The b&w is optional, but remember, it must be a birthday card.


Thanks for stopping by~

I am also an adherent of Susan's rule of thirds, so now on your recommendation will check Yana's post! Because if this gorgeous card is any indication, I'll be using her sketch, too! Fabulous mix of elements, and so elegant!
