Black and White Wedding Bling for Friday Mashup

It's Friday, woot woot! I'm even more excited because Wednesday was my last day working the special 10 hr shift I took on over the summer and come Monday I am back on nights, yes! This means more stamping time, which is always a good thing.

Today our Friday Mashup challenge is brought to us by Tara and its a good one. She wants us to either create a project using only the colors black and white, create a project that has some bling or combine them and create a black and white project that has some bling on it!

I knew as soon as I saw this challenge that I wanted to use the Love and Laughter set. I usually have a hard time using just black and white but I thought a wedding congratulations card would be good for that combo. For my bling I added pearl accents to the cake and in the corners of the main panel.

I was also able to play along with Freshly Made Sketches and used their great sketch for my card!

Supplies used (all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Love & Laughter
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Basic Black DSP
Ink: Black StazOn
Accessories: Big Shot, Lacy Brocade EF, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF, Basic Pearls
