Stampin B's Challenge # 16 No Stamps - Tall Card

Well, this was an unusual challenge in that we were to use absolutely no stamps and it had to be a tall card. As many of you know, when I feel particularly challenged I often turn to the natural drama of black and white. This was no exception. I pretty quickly knew what I was going to do, but the middle panel was a problem. I had planned to CB it, but the CB designs clashed with the design of the paper. So I decided to score it in squares and I LOVED the results. The scoring gave texture but did not take away from the beauty of the designer paper. I put my layered bloom together with a fabulous white floral brad from a gift set from my dear friend Charlene, aka LilLuvsStampin and Bertie and......well...we don't have enough time for all the nicknames, right BBB???!!! LOL!!!!

Anyway, be sure to visit the Stampin B's Blog to see the work of the other team members and to see how you can also play right along with us.
