On the Seventh Day of Christmas

Paper Craft Planet is having a 12 Days of Christmas Contest right now. I hadn't had time to play yet, but when I saw that today's challenge was to create an elegant black and white card (with a splash of color), I just had to join in on the fun. Black, white, and red is one of my favorite color combos, so I threw together this quick card to get it entered before the deadline. And since the sponsor today is Verve, I used my new So Happy set.

Stamps: So Happy (Verve)
Paper: Basic Black, PTI white
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers, ribbon (Michael's), flowers (The Paper Studio), oval punches, brad (Oriental Trading Co.)

I think the embossing on black cardstock helps lend to the elegant flavor. :-)
