black and white with a punch

When I saw Kelly Jo’s 10th Color Chef Challenge, I just knew that I had to play! I was dying to use my new Rockabilly paper — and the Taken with Teal + Black & White combo felt completely perfect to me tonight.

It’s strange — the button on the card bugs me in the picture, but it really completes the design on the actual card. On the actual card, the long ribbon ends combined with the greeting all draw the eye downward, so the button balances it out. But, because I cut off one of the ribbon ends when I framed the photo (bad Kim!), we lose some of that downward momentum. Interesting how that happens.

Note 6/11: I reshot this today when the sun finally came out from behind the clouds — hooray! Much, much happier with the results.
