Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop | Theme: Black & White + 1

Welcome to this months Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. Our theme this month is Black, White & one other colour of our choice.

With so many gorgeous colours in the Stampin' Up! colour palette this was a little tricky, but I decided to go with one of the new 2017-2018 In Colour colours: Berry Burst.

I love to create cards where no stamping is involved from time to time and my card today fits the bill.

Here is my card:

This was a pretty quick to put together, clean & simple card, that would suit a number of special occasions.

To add a little extra special touch and for some subtle sparkle, I have used Clear Wink of Stella on my Berry Burst Flowers and my die cut "love" sentiment.

Hope you like it :)
