Papertrey Peeps April challenge

Hey all! I finally finished my daughter's wedding invitations, whew! Now I can get to visiting some blogs and taking care of other stamping business.

Terri reminded me I'm hosting the April challenge for our blog group, the Papertrey Peeps so I've chosen (almost mid month here, but hey, weddings come first) to challenge the group to use black, either as a bold accent or the main color.

I found inspiration in a photo of a quilt in a magazine I bought. Lots of bright colors in the quilt that stand out even more vividly due to the black surrounding them. Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Quilter's Sampler
Paper: Black, purple, pink, orange, yellow, white
Ink: black archival
Other: copics, MS butterfly punch, cuttlebug folder

Bet you feel relieved to get the invitations done! This looks like a fun challenge. I always like black, especially as an accent. Love how you used it with all those contrasty colors--very pretty!

Black!!!! Eeeeeeek!! Your card is totally beautiful - and I really love the way you've used embossing to create a background quilted look! Congratulations on finishing up the invitations! You must be so super busy - and excited about all the wedding happenings! I hope there are beautiful memories to treasure in all the preparations!
