Dies R Us Challenge August 1, 2018-Black & White(no additional colors)

Hi, Friends!

I'm here to share with you my card for the Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is (Black & White)-no additional colors.  Come join in on the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate!  Enjoy creating!

I purchased a Clearly Besotted stamp set a while back knowing that I would make a card for my son.  He has played the piano since the age of five and also plays the organ.  Anyways, a piano is black and white.  And, it's a perfect challenge to make this card for him.  I hope he likes it!

And, here is my card...

I started with a white base and paired it with black/white plaid paper.  As I stated above, the stamp set is from Clearly Besotted.  No flowers or frills for this masculine card, so dots were added for the final touch.

A view of the inside of the card...

 All dies that were used for my card with links are listed below.  I hope you create a project using dies and join us for the challenge!

 There are so many choices at Dies R Us store!  Hope you check out the store for  amazing selection of dies, stamps, papers, inks, etc.!  I'd love to see your project in the challenge...happy creating!
