Simple Black and White

This weeks challenge over on the Arty Girlz Challenge blog is to make a card in "Black & White". Compared to time i usually need to make my other cards, was this one quite fast finished. :-) But sometimes you need cards like this, plus this gave me extra time to work on a bigger project.

Stamps: Stempendous "Asparagus" and Stampin up "Happy Harmony" for
sentiment (retiered Sell-A-Bration set 2007)
CS: Stampin up: Black, silver and white
Ink: Brilliance black and Stampin up "Going Grey"
Others: Nestabilities, silver brads, ticket corner punch
Today i would also love to mention 4 blogs i really love to visit often. The reason why i think these blogs are faboulus is, because these crafters are very often my first choice if i need some ideas on coloring or just for the European way for layouts.
So, if you are open for a different style than the US style, i highly reccomend these blogs:

Hi Claudia!

I love your card! It's gorgeous. It's so clean and crisp! I love this SU stamp set.

What's a European card layout? How is it different from US layouts? Just curious. One lady had told me once that your cards are slightly larger measurement from the US typical 4.14" x 5.5". Is that true?

Thank you for sharing your wonderful card!!

Maria

Claudia, die Karte ist ja auch sowas von schön - elegant, edel, zeitlos... Wundere Dich nicht, dass ich nicht regelmäßig hier bin (auch CCT konnte ich nicht mitmachen), meine beiden Kinder und ich haben einen Magen-Darm-Virus eingefangen - hier steppt der Bär im Kettenhemd... Wünsche Dir und Deinen Lieben ein schönes Wochenende... *bussi*
