African Adventures

Awhile ago, I submitted three samples for a color challenge, which was to use black and white plus one color.  None of them made the cut.  But since I like them, and this is my  blog, you too get to have a look at these over the next three posts! 

Second only to Kraft-plus-any-color, black and white are at the top of my list for favorite color combinations to work with.  Adding in a third color really makes it special. 

My favorite things on this card are the beading ( a little hard to see – sorry) and the serendipitous idea to use a grassy border die to cut out an orange strip and use it for some added texture under the palm frond strip.  I'll be doing that one again for sure . . .
