Black & White & Green

When I saw the current challenge at The Play Date Cafe, it spoke to me. Black, White and a splash of green:

I pulled out my pack of KaiserCraft Chapter One papers, because they are blue and green and black and white and would give us sooooo many possibilities. This is what came out:

 I immediately knew I wanted to use this pretty paper. It's mostly black & white, with a subtle gradient green pattern in the background. I used all white and black elements - ribbon, sentiment, layers, etc., but when we rummaged through my every color pearls basket and discovered a pack of gorgeous KaiserCraft pearls, I went with black & white & green.

One other cool thing about this piece of paper: all the black on it is shiny:

Okay, here it's glaring, too, but that glare is reflecting off the shiny black flowers.

In other news, my sweetie-head pal, Lisa is visiting, and she played the same challenge! We had crafting in stereo! She even used one of my UFOs, so she totally gets bonus points for that. You should go over to her post and leave her some love.

Thanks for stopping by!
