Three Color Card with Word Stamps and Cuttlebug

     Have you ever been inspired by something and thought what a great card or scrapbook page the components or colors of what you saw would make?  I was shopping for some clothes for work, and was instantly inspired by an outfit I saw.  I would have purchased this pants and top on the spot, because the color combo really caught my eye and held my interest.  It was black, white, and lime green.  How striking and crisp it looked.  Alas, they had not one in my size.  So, I came home and made a card using this striking combination. 

I entered this card in the following challenges: - Black and white with a splash of color - Bingo challenge using gems, swirls, ribbon
Here's the sketch for the MojoMonday challenge                                                          
This close-up shows the background details.  I started with a white card, added a black panel, then embossed four 1 1/4" strips with my Cuttlebug and embossing template and placed them evenly along the black card to create the panels called for in the sketch design.
This one shows the circle of gems that I love so much.
 I used Just Rite stamps from their Sending You Sunshine clear stamp set, and the thinking of you is from Flourishes.  A touch of lace from my stash, and some swirl rhinestones complete the look.

Hope you're having a great week!
