Six Chicks Challenge #9


While some of us are busy pouring gravy all over our turkey and mashed potatoes, I know there are an equal number of people out there who are poring over the Black Friday sales ads! I can hear them shouting "Bring on the sales!". They must have been listening over at Limelight, because not only do they have some awesome sales scheduled for Black Friday, they also have a challenge focusing on all things black! How easy is that?! Anything black will do, although, I recommend the Black Magic cardstock, black licorice Pixee Stix glitter, or black fun flock! If you don't have anything from Limelight, PLEASE, go ahead and play along anyways!

Sketch and Product Challenge using black for Black Friday!

  • Uploads to SCS should have the keyword: LLPC009
  • Participants should post a comment and a link to their card on THIS blog by Sunday, November 30th, at midnight
  • All entries will be entered into a random drawing for a $10 Limelight Papercrafts Gift Certificate!
My card features Core'dinations Black Magic cardstock in Amulet. What a beautiful blue color that shows through the sanded black coating, huh? ;) I love it! This paper is so much fun to work with! I used the Pink Paislee Tinsel Town clear stamps for the snowflake. :) Oh, and that's a large Ice Blue rhinestone on the knotted tulle! I actually started this card out following the layout orientation of the sketch, but I set it down for a minute after finishing it, and I just LOVED it sideways! But for you purists, here ya go... ;)

Stamps: Pink Paislee Tinsel Town. Cardstock: Core'dinations Black Magic Amulet, GP White. Ink: Bashful Blue, Adirondack Pitch Black. Accessories: Raven Tulle, Ice Blue Rhinestones, Pewter Pearls.
