SP & Company October Blog Hop!

This month's color is Black! After you're done hopping around today, make sure you play along with this month's Black challenge (click here for details) for a chance to win some amazing SP and Company prizes!

OK, so you may have noticed that my card base is brown and not black.  Yep.  I know.  Funny story...I got way wrapped up in this new Christmas Day Carta Bella paper.  That is what all of these patterned papers are from and they are beautiful!  Love, love, love them.  Anywho, I got my layout all done, pulled out a piece of black cardstock, thinking I would just mount it on a black card and....no...it totally didn't work.  So, it became brown....

Now, TECHNICALLY, I have still used black, since my image and sentiment are both stamped in black, lol!  I have used a mix of images from two of October's brand new releases Glam Girl Emma and Handmade Holiday Gift Tags.  These sets are just AWESOME and go together so well!  I colored Emma with a combination of colored pencils, markers and used some of those patterned papers to paper piece her clothes.  The papers were just perfect.  I love how her skirt turned out with the chevron stripe.  So cool!

Glam Girl is all decked out in her paper-pieced outfit. Great choice of patterned paper and agree with your choice of a brown card base, Michelle. Black shows ~ isn't that all that matters?
