Phindy's Friday Challenge

TGIF! Time for another Phindy's Friday Challenge. The theme this week is black and white with a touch of color. Wow, there are so many different Phindy images that would work well for this one, it was hard to chose one. So, I decided to make two.

Hope you will pop on over to the challenge blog and see what the DT has created this week. Play along with the challenge to win some prizes. It's not necessary to use a Phindy image, but if you do you get entered twice, so that is some pretty good incentive!.

For my first card I used the image Scoops of Love. I tried my hand at black and white coloring here, it was fun to do and I just added a touch of pink for fun.

For this second one, I used the image May I have this dance? to make a Father's Day card for my hubby from Lilah. This time I went all black and white with the card elements and colored the image. This  uses a sketch from the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge blog (SSS112) for the layout.


Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Hi Kathy!
That second one is my favorite! I love the scalloped heart and border. It looks really sharp! And the two brads just finish it off so perfectly. Nice job on both of them!
