...Monochromatic Silhouettes

I am so hooked on monochromatic cards lately! I made this one at the little stamping retreat last weekend using my new stamp sets, "Pocket Silhouettes" and "Fresh Cuts". I have also noticed that I use ALOT of Basic Black as an accent on many (alright....most) of my cards, so why not embrace it as a focal color?!? I combined the ever-so-popular black with Basic Gray and Whisper White to create this wedding card. The striped designer paper is from the Ghostly Greetings Designer Series Paper collection, and it was embossed in black with the leaves from Fresh Cuts. The focal leaves from Pocket Silhouettes were also embossed in black, then the panels were cut and embossed using SpellBinder's Nestabilities Dies (THANKS DONNA AND PAM!!!). Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon and Gray 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon finished it off.

That's it for today! I have so much to do before football time, so I will see you all back here tomorrow! Until then...
