A Splash of Hot Pink

Today's card was created for the The Play Date Cafe Challenge #119.  This week they were having a color splash week.  Black and White with a 'Splash" of Hot Pink.  Thanks Julie for inviting me to play along, this was a fun challenge and I hope you all enjoy my card. See the sketch below.

To make this card:

I used a 5-3/4" x 5-3/4" black cardstock as my base.  I wasn't paying attention, as I was going to cut it at 6" x 6".  Not one to waste paper, I used the slightly smaller size.  I then layered grey 5-1/4" x 5-1/4" and white 5" x 5".  I also cut a 1-1/2" x 5-3/4" strip of hot pink gingham pattern paper. 

To finish this card:

I stamped the floral image, from an older wood mounted Close to My Heart stamp.  I'm truly trying to work with what I have and it's been great fun revisiting older images I haven't used for years.  I added a grey outline to the image with my Tombow markers and stamped a sentiment in the lower left corner. I stamped the focal point flower from the image a second time on hot pink gingham pattern paper.  This second image was cut out and mounted on top of of the full image.  To finish the card I used black bakers twine from Doodlebug Design and some hot pink rhinestones.  Layer all paper as shown in the picture.

Catch the Frenzy!
