Baja Breeze on Black & THIS WEEK'S WEDNESDAY WINNER!

Here's a card I whipped up Friday for the Splitcoast Stampers Challenge. The challenge was to use a black base. This is very hard for me since I find black a very intimidating color to incoporate into my designs. I LOVEEEEE this Baja Breeze blue color. I just bought a new bedroom comforter set that has this lighter blue color in it, so soothing and calming, isn't it?

Well, I wasn't sure if Baja Breeze would look all that great with black, but I went ahead and put it together anyways! Hmm... still unsure myself, how do you feel about these two colors together?

More artisan creations coming quick, so check back!

EDITED TO ADD 1-25: Leave a comment on this post to WIN this card! I will draw no later than Wednesday! It doesn't look 'Valentiney' but you could still use it for that day!




Have a SUPER DAY!

IMHO, black goes with everything. And it also makes everything so striking. The high contrast catches the eye, I think (or at least MY eye! LOL)

By the way, the bracelet at the top of your blog is gorgeous!

Off to link you up on my blog! Look for the CandyBar on the right hand side and scroll down until you find your link.

I love the colors... the friend is a little too fancy for my friends! The blue reminds me of a huge snowflake... maybe because I am having my first snow day!

I actually really like the black CS in this card :) Like you, I don't use a lot of black in my creations nor in my wardrobe.
Love the card!
