City Crafter Challenge # 197 Color Splash

Hi Friends!! This week the talented Ros is our hostess and she has chosen the challenge!
Theme: Color Splash (Black, white, Grey/Black) with a splash of color



I had some trouble with this card lol....looking back at all my cards I don't think I have a single grey,black, and white card. But I love a  good challenge and Ros always brings me a great one :-)  I also used my new PTI stamp again which I wasn't going to buy, but did (my friend talked me into it)and I'm liking it. The grey paper in the background is embossed and then I sanded it to bring out the white. The sentiment is PTI also.

 
Our Guest Designer this week is Marina! Please stop by her blog and say hi!!
And stop by City Crafter and see what the other talented DT cooked up! :-)
 
Hugs, Char
