Paper Pretties #319 - theme RED/BLACK/WHITE / I forgot your birthday

Wednesday July 16, 2014
Wednesday and a new challenge at Paper Pretties #319 - RED - BLACK - WHITE
I know, I know the white isn't white.. because when I did it you couldn't see the white word.. duh it's on a white background.. You get the idea though.  I used a lot of scraps and just cut them in lengths and widths that I needed and adhered them to a piece of scrap 4.25 x 5.5 and then cut finished piece to the size I needed for my card. I was not happy with the way the top looked so I added the bakers twine around a couple of times to mask off that area. I wanted to make room for the sentiment and since it was so long... once again I put it on the side.. I do love that look. I think it adds more interest on the card..
I used the image return of cluck by Paper pretties of course.
I hope you play along this week and post your card to the Paper Pretties blog. Have fun.
