Vintage Date

I just love combining images and sentiments!  I have taken this elegant vintage image from Create with TLC's  "Vintage Date" and combined it with the perfect sentiment from Paulette's "Women Equal Strength" collection.

Vintage Date

I used Cricut's CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge, Ornamental Iron 2 and a Spellbinder's die for my diecuts.  The ribbon, lace and design paper are from my stash.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I just love the dramatic effect of black and white although I don't use it that often.  I think I need to experiment more!  Do you find yourself using the same colors most of the time?  This sounds like a good excuse to visit the craft stores, LOL!

Thanks for visiting!  I love reading your comments and appreciate all your support.

This is a stunner, Marsha - yes, black and white is a dramatic colour scheme, and like you I do not use it enough.

Nancy said...

Yes! I do find myself using the same colors all the time. I love your black and white combo. Very sophisticated!
