Inspire. Create. 40

It's an interesting colour challenge at Inspire. Create this week. Just two colours: black and white.

I was excited as soon as I saw this challenge because it made me think of Very Vintage, a set I really like. This set, with its almost lithographic quality, seems tailor-made for a black and white challenge.

It's a very simple card: repeat stamp the floral and bee images then cut out a centre rectangle using the Stitched Rectangle framelits, mount it and pop it up on dimensionals. Finally - very unusually for me - add in a ribbon to accentuate the sentiment. 

With such pretty imagery, you really don't need to do much except let the stamps shine!

I'd originally planned to stamp 'Happy Birthday' on the inside but apart from some stamped images, I've left it blank because I thought that it would also make a great Mother's Day card or Anniversary card too.

Update: Delighted to get a  Special Mention at Inspire.Create.
