Black and White with a Splash of color


Todays challenge over at TAC is Black and White with a splash of color - my card is very simple using a cuttlebug embossing folder I embossed the top 2/3, left a space of about 1 in. then embossed the bottom portion of the card with the embossing folder, I used my scor-pal and drew definite lines to show off the white space. I stamped my sentiment using Savvy Sayings, cut out with labels 4 nestie and put it on the right side of the card. Then I am so excited - I just learned to make rolled flowers using a circle punch or nestie - how much fun so the red flowers are my splash of color. I have a co-worker/friend that just had open heart surgery to replace not 1 but 2 valves so I am hoping this card will add a bit of cheer for her recovery.
