Playing in Paradise # 44

Happy Friday Everyone - I have exciting news, I have been asked to be Guest Designer over at Scrapbooker's Paradise  for this week's Playing in Paradise challenge. I am thrilled, thank you so much ladies.

This weeks challenge is perfect for me as I have been fascinated by monochrome cards for the past little while, more specifically black and white.

I found this wonderful free kit over at ShabbyPrincess that had this digital designer paper. I don't usually have much luck with hybrid cards but this turn out great. I heat embossed the tree and sentiment with black embossing powder then added clear rhinestones. Just about every layer is popped up, and the sentiment is 4 layers thick not including the velvet ribbon running long the back. I finished with the black rhinestones in the upper corners.

Head over to the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog to see all the wonderful creations by the Design Team

Supplies: Natural White and black cardstock, Designer Paper- ShabbyPrincess, Stampin' Up!-Snow Swirled, Verve-Glad Tidings, Spellbinders dies, misc embossing folders, Kaisercraft rhinestones, misc velvet ribbon.
