Love Story

Today I am sharing a card with the black, kraft, lime, newsprint and white combination challenge from ColourQ along with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches
I used a Kraft card base, black mat, then newsprint (DP from SU). I sponged some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink on the newsprint to tone it down a bit. The lime polka dots are Bo Bunny matted to black. I have been noticing and liking the double tag designs so went with that--repeating the kraft in the background. The Lucky Limeaid (SU) stamped flourish is from an old stamp in my stash. The sentiment is from SU's One In A Million set. I tied the tags with lime/white twine and added a big rhinestone for bling. I think this could be used for a wedding card or anniversary card.
Here is the sketch I followed:

And the colors:

  1. I like the layout of this card. I may have to try that double-tag trick. I think it looks particularly nice the way you've repeated the craft cardstock.

  3. Nice card! Love the sketch, that block of green behind the tags makes the tags pop off the page just a tad and I like that.
