Its black and white

Made this black and white card for Crafty Card Makers And More Challenge. I love black and white cards, quick and easy but very striking.  Used this  B Line stamp that a friend bought me in 2007 as a cheer up gift when I had just been diagnosed with cancer, it has been well and truly used and I still love it. 
This afternoon I finally got around to playing with my gelli plate which has been languishing unused and unloved in a drawer, didn't produce anything wonderful but some pieces will be used no doubt. One good thing also came out of it in that while watching you tube videos I noticed one lady was using the back of 12x12 scrapbook papers, Now I have been wondering whatever I was going to do with my humungous stash of papers now I know! already cut a bunch of them in 6x6 pieces and used some of them, when I look at some of the papers I have I do wonder what I was thinking when I bought them!

  8. Fabulous card Joan. Playing with my Gelli plate is just one of those things on my to do list for this year, and like you I have loads of papers that 'I'm not sure what I was thinking of', so now I know what to do with them.
