It's Tuesday--Sassy Cheryl's Challenge -Yep, I'm the Hostess Again!!!

Like I said I am the hostess this week for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge.  I know not too many got to play along last week but this is such a busy time of year with vacations and school starting soon or maybe it was the Challenge :(  I thought it was a good idea last week and this week's Challenge is:  Black, White with pink embellishments.  Here is my card:  

I didn't exactly make the dress, hat and  bow black but shades of grey.  The image is called Freebie 600 and you can get this darling image by Joining Sassy Cheryl's group on Paper Craft Planet.  All of Sassy Cheryl's images are so cute and awesome and the Freebie images are no exception.  You know how some companies have kind of questionable freebies ?!?  Sassy Cheryl's freebies are as meticulously drawn as the images available in the store.
I like bold color combinations like Black, white and red :  Black and White,  and so I thought it would be fun to change it up just a bit.  What do you think of the Black, White and hot pink?  I like it.  The ribbon was white grosgrain ribbon dyed with SU reinkers.  The color is Passion Pink.  The image was sponged with pink and black soot distresss ink. 
My fellow DT member on another team, Sandy Hulsart, FORCED me to buy some new dies and one of them is the lower slotted flower .( Sandy didn't really force me :) , but I loved the dies on some projects she has on her blog and went to the Sweet Stamps site and picked out 3 dies).   I added two prima flowers on top.  They are really nice Dies but I did have to add some ejection foam that I had on hand so I could get the flowers out of the die.  Always feels good when I have something on hand to make my life easier. Even better than that is I remembered exactly where it was when I wanted it LOL!!!   I had bought the ejection foam a couple of years ago for some QuickKutz dies, and have only used a couple of  pieces of it.

Be sure you stop by the rest of the DT's blogs to see what they created for the challenge today.  I know it will be worth the visit.  Try to find a few minutes to play along there is always a chance to win a 5.00 gift certificate from  Sassy Cheryl's Store and there are over 700 images to choose from, gotta have something you can't live without.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  I am almost recovered from my trip and should get some more projects posted this week.
