B is for Black and White


Good morning everybody. It's Wednesday which means it's time for another great challenge over on the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog. Our theme this week is B is for Black and White.

We are very lucky this week to be sponsored by the fabulous Dustin Pike who was very generous and provided the DT with some of his wonderful images to work with. Dustin has also created a fantastic freebie especially for this challenge which you can pick up here

I have chosen to work with this great image called Snowman Build. I think that these little mice and their mousey snowman are just too cute.


For my card, I had a bit of an extra challenge as I discovered that I did not have any Black and White paper in my stash. The crafter in me worked around that. Using some stamps and embossing powders, I was able to create two patterned papers. I also used my Cuttlebug to create an embossed background.

We have some rules for this Challenge:
To Qualify for the Prize/s you must only use black and white things to make your card.
but you can add some colour to the Image.
You Must make a Christmas card or Christmas project using the Freebie or a Dustin Pike Image/or older freebie or a High Hope Image.

Non Dustin Pike submissions will only qualify for the Top 3

The Prizes
We have 2 prizes:
1st place winner will receive 2 Dustin Pike digi images
2nd place winner will receive 1 Dustin Pike digi image

I hope that you will pull out your paper and trimmers to join us in the challenge, but before you do, please be sure to stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge blog to see the gorgeous creations that my DT teamies have created to inspire you.  We look forward to seeing all of your wonderful creations.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:

Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge - Anything Goes
CES Challenge - No Designer Papers
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Anything Goes
Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes
Stemple-Magie - Winter
