Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #14

Oh, wow! I love this color challenge, because I love black and white! Kristina asked us to create a "high-contrast, bold creation". Well, I hope I've done that.

Our colors this week are:

(July 3rd - ETA: I changed Going Gray to Basic Gray) Basic Black, Basic Gray, Ruby Red, River Rock, and Whisper White



I literally put the Thickers on the cardstock first and worked backwards from there. I finally bought Thickers a few weeks ago. I didn't add ribbon because I wanted to keep the card masculine.

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Inkadinkado Humorous Birthday (I cut the tiny cupcake out)
Paper: Basic Black, River Rock, Ruby Red, pattern designer paper (American Crafts) has a gray/silver reverse side
Ink: Memories black, River Rock
Other: American Crafts Thickers (Poolside - vinyl), rhinestone (Me & My Big Ideas), foam tape
