OCC...Black & White with a Splash

Happy Saturday Peeps!!! 
It is time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge. 
This week our hostess with the mostest is the fabulous Tui Nathan and she has fun challenge for us:

Black and White with a splash of Colour"  Create a card, or paper craft item with the colours Black and White, then add a splash of a colour of your choosing.

I had this wonderful pack of DSP, Morning Mocha by Stampin UP and hadn't broken into it yet, so this challenge was the perfect opportunity. This black piece is gorgeous with a flocked design.
I added my "splash" of color by making a red flower using the Floral Fusion die. 

I used the little leaves die and made my white leaves. I added some large pearls and black satin ribbon.
I think this card would be great for a wedding or anniversary card but since I am not in the need for one of those, I choose to make it a "thank you". The sentiment on here is from the "Thank You Kindly" stamp set.

Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog 
to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun challenge.
I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do, don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Hello Vicki
I have to agree and say the Bg Paper is beautiful, it is the first element that catches your eye, then the flower comes into play and choosing passionate Red of course is the perfect accent. I really like your white bordered panel too.
A gorgeous card, and who cares if it is mailable!

Absolutely elegant, in every sense of the word, Vicki! I really think that paper is the most under-rated paper in the catty. It is gorgeous in "real-life". I bet the flocking and the shimmer are even prettier in person! Love it! Hope you are having a great week, so far! Hugs! :)
