One-Layer Wednesday 19: B&W with a Spot of Color

As soon as I made this card, I knew exactly what the OLW19 challenge would be!


Make a black and white card with just a single spot of color. It can be just a bit of an outline image as I have done or a single little embellishment (button, brad, gem, ribbon tab, punched shape, etc.). Just keep the spot of color rather smallish, so it stands out all the more!

Rules for OLW19

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.

2. Make a card that is mostly black and white with just a spot of color. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.

3. Please share your creation by posting your card online and then using the InLinkz button in the sidebar of Simplicity to link to it.

4. Most important of all...HAVE FUN!

Supplies
stamps: Papertrey Ink All Booked Up and Text Style
ink: Palette Noir
paper: PTI white
accessories: SU real red marker
