Challenge #15: Color Challenge Black White & Grey Only

Hey There friends,

Are you ready for another challenge?? I was so pleased with all of the wonderful enteries to the last challenge. I loved seeing your favorite memories of 2010 and your goals for 2011. You ladies really motivated me to try to stick to my goals the best I can.

This week if you're new. We are playing for the January Prize: April Showers Cricut Cartridge
I host a challenge every other wednesday and the participants of each challenge in that month are entered for a chance to win the monthly prize. If you participate in both Challenges during the month you have DOUBLE the chances to win :)

This week I am also proud to announce that we will be starting in with out 2011 Guest Designers who will create projects along side my fabulous 3 Design Team Members.

This week our challenge is: Create a Project using the colors Black White and Grey ONLY. Feel free to substitute Silver for Grey if need be.

Today we have Jeanine C from Scrappin with JC Jeanine Created what I can only describe as an ultra lux chipboard album. I was super impressed.
 She has a video of her entire book over on her site, so make sure to pop over for a visit and let her know i sent you :)

Now onto my talented trio. And let me just say their projects are wayyyy better than mine. This was a hard challenge for me, even though I was the one who thought it up. I always try to challenge myself!

Elsa created this fantastic 18th birthday card. with these colors it's a great card to have in your stash because it's easily gender neutral :) I also adore the embossing on the numbers.

Next Ivette created this very romantic wedding card.Perfect for seriously ANY wedding
Last but not least for the Design team we have Amanda. Amanda thought out of the box and took the chance to scrapbook her sonogram photos of her daughter with the color scheme. And I think this turned out fantastic

Now for my project. I can't honestly say what. was thinking with it. I basically found some black and white paper paper i wanted to use, and i wanted to use a doily somewhere in there, and alot of bling and I came up with this card.  I cut out the hearts by hand out of scraps and used some old silver and black glitter to cover them. It really turned out to be super glam!

the sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe Valentine Family & Friends

I loved your color challenge and am glad that I got a chance to play. It was a challenge for me since i don't usually scrapbook or make cards just these 3 colors. I usually use bright colorful colors but this was fun! I can't wait to see your other challenges. Thanks!
