The ink is black the page is white



Morning all, hope this days finds you well. As some of you astute readers may have noticed my blog has a little face lift. I am still finding my feet on the old HTML stuff and not all the buttons work yet but I will figure it out!

My card for today is my design team work for the fun challenges over at in love with stamping site. I used the bird cage stamp for background paper - I do love to do this (you may have noticed ha!).

Have a great day & see you soon.x

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Happy moments and vintage labels (sale.a.bration).
Ink: Black stazon.
Card stock: Basic black and very vanilla.
Misc: Basic grosgrain striped ribbon and hardware from (retired) hodgepodge kit.

I love this. When I started stamping 20 years ago, we made all our background paper. Thanks for reminding me how great that is. Thanks for sharing.
