Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is inspired by another song title - "Two Black Cadillacs" - so we are using black plus a new In Color. I think any of the brighter In Colors (Tahitian Tide, Sweet Sorbet, and Parakeet Party) work beautifully with black, so I chose the one that really pops - Parakeet Party.
I got the Season of Chic bundle just so I could have that funky die cut grid background, lol. But once I got it, I realized there is a lot more to it, and I'm looking forward to using it for several seasons! (Helloooo, snowflakes!)
It's really hard to see the black on black, but there are two die cut black grids under the Distressed Gold grid. This is a case of it really does look better in real life. I stamped the flower filler in Parakeet Party on the matching cardstock before cutting it out and adding the outline die cut on top. Don't you think the flower trinket really is the cherry on top?!
That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
