Black Ink Only

Here's another card I made for Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge to use black ink only. I combined it with fall-to layout #30 from the CAS blog to create a quick, elegant card. You can't really tell from the photo, but the pearls aren't white; they're a shade of blue-green that coordinates nicely with PTI's Aqua Mist.

Stamps: Best Yet (SU)
Paper: PTI Aqua Mist, The Paper Studio dp
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: ribbon (PTI), pearls (Kaiserscrapbook), corner rounder punch
