An Inspired Black and White with a Doubledog Dash of Red

This weeks inspiration challenge on Split Coast was a web site store called Skeem. I was inspired by this tower candle.Anne (jdmommy) also Doubledog Dared our little challenge group to make a card using red, white and black so this inspiration fit that bill too - with my added red ribbon. You can join along with our Doubledog challenge - just use the keyword DDC. You can see all the Doubledog challenge cards here.Because the inspiration was clean and simple - I left the card without a sentiment or other embellishments. Inside I stamped a simple "Thanks for Your Kindness" from the Everyday Classics set from Papertrey Ink. (You cannot buy this set - you earned it free by buying 12 sets last year from PTI). Thanks for stopping by today - hope you have a lovely weekend!

Stamps: Fresh Cuts: SU , sentiment: Everyday Classics: PTI
Paper: Bazzill White, Basic Black: SU
Ink: versamark watermark ink
Accessories: white EP, hot gun, pure poppy luxe satin ribbon: PTI
