I had a BLAST making this card for a Way to Use it Challenge on SCS. We were to make a card decorated with black pen. I started by stamping flowers from Lawn Pawn’s Petite Florals in Jet Black Archival ink on a Label 1 Nestabilities die cut out of Whisper White cardstock. Next I started doodling with a black sharpie until the entire piece was covered.


The background was layered on a 3 7/8″ basic black cardstock square. Three of the corners were corner rounded. The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Core’dinations cardstock

The sentiment is from Unity’s Rockin’ it Unity Style. It was stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink on Whisper White cardstock. I cut the left hand side banner style and added a Basic Gray ribbon to the left side of it.

I finished off the card by adding Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones in the center of the flowers and Startdust stickles over some places.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! Hugs and smiles
