C4C133 - Black Cardstock

Hi there! Happy Saturday! Today There She Goes Clear Stamps is sponsoring Crazy 4 Challenges. Jessica has generously offered a $25 gift certificate to the winner of the challenge!! This week's challenge is to use black cardstock on your card. 

I decided to go clean and simple. :) The layout is iSpy Sketches #12. I love that original card by Melyssa! This is definitely a sketch I'll use again. It was fun! 

I used this sentiment from the Numbered Days set. The background was embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder. I made the bow with my Bow Easy, and I accented the card with some rhinestones. Gotta have a little bling for this girly card! Oh, and the paper is Echo Park Be Mine.

That's it! I'm off to get ready for a day of shopping and card-making! Thanks so much for stopping by today!! 

Cardstock: True Black, white (PTI)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park Be Mine
Stamps: Numbered Days by There She Goes
