KW Color Inspiration Challenge #19

Hello Everyone,

It's time for another Kristiana Werner Color Inspiration Challenge. Yay! I missed doing her last one because we were on vacation, so was pysched to do one again :) This week's colors are to the left: Black, White, Gray and the fun part is that we can choose our fourth color. That I think was the hard part because everything looks good with black and white... hard to narrow the choices. I ended up choosing an aqua blue as my fourth color

Since the wall in the photo was gray, I did the matte behind the little birds in a metallic gray. I liked the black and white square motif on the square pillow - so I wanted to have a few squares in the card. 

The squares were punched out with my CM square punches, the birds were stamped onto the squares by masking parts of that stamp and using the Stamp-a-majig to alighn the birds to the center of the square. The black cardstock used is a shiny black - I only have little snippets left - and really like the feel of this cardstock.  It was hard to take a pic of it because it is so reflective.

Well, I only have 2 more birthday cards to make - I see the end in sight :) I really enjoyed making this card and all the card therapy it provided :)

Today is the first day of school! I have to get a ton done and am so glad that I had a chance to play :)

Thank you for coming over for a visit,
Ciao for now,
Sankari

Too cute, too cute!! I think it's top 10 material!!! Ok, I haven't done mine... I am coming to a conclusion that I am just a night person. I can't think of a design until it's pass 11 :)

The aqua blue was a great choice with the black-and-white! And you did an awesome job with the birds centering in the squares - I'm so bad at using the stamp-a-majig...
All in all: Great card!!!!
