Back to Black & Paper Players Challenge # 77


While surfing the various blogs I discovered City Crafter Challenge where they're having a challenge for anything back to black. Don't ya just love this inspiration photo (although you can see it really didn't apply to my card, but it did give me the inspiration to use the silhouette stamp).

I would also like to enter my card for one of my "fav" challenges" Paper "Players, their theme this week is "All you Need is Love", and I guess this card would fill the bill.

Anyhow this is the card I created using the woman's silhouette as my "back to black" and "All you Need is Love".


The background paper is an oldie but goodie from Stampin' Up, with a paper doily from the craft store and the image stamped on SU's glossy white paper. I thought this image looked perfect with the doily kinda like portraits and Valentine's cards used to be.

I also used a scallop die for the pink layer as well as a die called Photo Finishers, both from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for looking and leaving a comment, would love to hear from you.

This is lovely! The doilies are gorgeous and the perfect compliment to the background paper which looks like doilies too. The pop of black in the silhouette is so dramatic and elegant, I love it! So glad you could join us at The Paper Players this week!

NICE! I love the pink scallop circle atop the doily; with the pretty red background paper it makes a perfect and very pretty valentine.
