Black and One other Color

  I am the card Captain this week for the Michael Strong Yahoo group. That means I will post a card each day . (Yes, each week we have a volunteer to post a card everyday- lots of inspiration!)

 I had a challenge to make a card that was black plus one color- I used a retired SU color Baroque Burgandy. I used a stamp from the Cloisonne Cranes set. The crane is embossed in black and adds a little texture to the top layer.

Shelly, your cloisonne crane card is SO ELEGANT! I love it!!! The black and burgundy look so beautiful together and really showcase Mike's crane stamp! Looking forward to a week filled with your lovely cards!!!

Great work. I love embossed cards (and did 25 embossed Christmas cards)--it adds such a nice touch.

Beautiful Shelly. Love that origami crane. Very unusual stamp. Your texture adds a lot to the card too. Happy Tuesday!
