Black & White and read all over.

Hello all!
It's time for another challenge from the PINK team at Eclectic Ellapu and this week, it's my turn to pick the theme.  I love black and white photos and most art created with text so I decided that should be the challenge - to create something with black and white and to use text as well.  I know that those of you who love bright colours may think this isn't for them but I would encourage you to give it a go.  It's always fun to try something new and you can get so much variety from just using black and white - take a look at the fabulous creations from the DT if you don't believe me!!

                        For my card, I decided to use one of my own digis available from Can You Digi It - LilyPink Designs - a silhouette couple in a heart.  With the addition of a computer generated script background and some Cameo cutting of the main sentiment, I had a simple and easy card ideal for Valentine's Day, a wedding or anniversary or just plain 'because'.


I would like to enter this into the challenges at -

Just gorgeous, Dawn! I love b/w cards, but can't seem to carry them off--certainly not like this! Love the background, the design, the silhouette, and the fun Cameo sentiment! :^)

I still adore that image you did for CYDI? - so cute and kind of retro looking. I need to make something with it too. Love the bg you used and the cool Love letters you did on your cameo. Great card. Hugz!
