....These Are a Few Of My Favorite Things

A recent challenge on SCS asked us to use some of our favorite things to create a card, and these are some of mine. Colors: Black and white is a favorite color scheme...clean and classy. Paper: My all time favorite designer paper is Basic Grey. I never met one I didn't like. Stamps: Swirls and flourishes are very popular right now and I love them. This one's from Inkadinkado. Ink: When I need black, I always use jet black Archival Ink. I love the super large inkpad, the fact that it's waterproof, and the true black color. (Let me say here, that I love Stampin'UP inkpads and use them most of the time. But I do not like or use their black...it has a very definite purple-ish cast to it.) Accessories: Love love ribbon. And it really helps that I live near a town that has a fabulous Offray ribbon outlet. I can indulge without guilt! I also love Stickles. It's easy to use, comes in oodles of colors, and adds a very subtle touch of bling. In this case I colored the black strip of cardstock with black Stickles.

Oh, and this card is one of my favorite things! It's so elegant, but in a rather fun way. You mentioned several of my favorite things, too. I've always loved swirls and flourishes--crazy about them, in fact. Gorgeous card, Deb, as are all the others you've recently posted when I wasn't looking!
