Ebony and Ivory Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ebony and Ivory Blog Hop, if you are following the Ebony and Ivory  Blog Hop, you should have come from Monica Weaver's Blog Add a Little Dazzle. If you did not come from Monica's Blog and would like to start from the beginning start here at the Ebony and Ivory Blog Hop Home . This is the fifth stop of fifteen Blog Stops. I am certain that you will find many great ideas that you will Love.

For my card I used the color combination of Basic Black and Whisper White. I had no idea what to create for this hop, so Friday night I started playing around. I had some Scrapbooking Friends over and while they Scrapbooked I made this card. Let me know what you think. 

To create this card I used the embossing folder "Manhattan Flower". I then used a sponge dauber and the Stampin' Pastel color Basic Black and went over the raised embossing. I punched out the two corners with the "Scallop Trim Corner" punch. The bird was punched with the "Bird Builder". I punched one Basic Black  wing and one Whisper White wing. The random lines were made with the White Gel Pen. The eye is one of our Basic Pearls, the smallest. I don't know if you can see in photo, but the top flower also has three Basic Pearls on it. The ribbon is the 5/8 in. White Organza Ribbon. To make the ribbon black I used the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, use the paint brush side and color the ribbon. This is a great trick to use when you need a color of ribbon you don't have. It is quick and oh, so easy. I hope you like this card leave me a message and let me know what you think. Don't keep our Hop a Secret let all your friends know.

Now it is time for you to continue on to the next SU' Stars Ebony and Ivory Blog Hop stop, You are heading to Angela's blog Life with a Wiener Dog. Have a great time blog hopping.
