Jane in Black & White

I love the crisp, classy and elegant look of a black and white card.  Seriously, anything black & white is simply beautiful! Adding the Simply Jane stamp set with the color scheme is absolute perfection.

I started with a 3 1/2 x 5 piece of Basic Black card stock.  I die cut the frame, rounded the bottom corners and embossed it using the Stripes embossing folder.  Then I adhered it to my Whisper White card base using removeable adhesive and stamped the frame.  I removed the black layer and then permanently adhered it with pop dots.  The die cut silhouette & flower and simple pearl were the last touches added to my card. I decided to leave this one without a sentiment, it's a versatile enough design that it can be used for countless occasions!

**I was inspired by the CAS inspiration challenge at Splitcoaststampers(CAS175) & Stamp N Plus Challenge.  This card also fits into the Make it Monday Anything Goes Challenge.

Stamp:  Simply Jane (PTI)
Ink:  Basic Black
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories:  Simply Jane dies, Stripes Embossing Folder, corner rounder, pearl
