November Guest Designer at Crazy 4 Challenges!

Hello friends!  Happy weekend to ya! :)
I hope you have a nice and relaxing one...and of course find time to stamp and play!

I'm so excited to tell you that I was asked to be a November guest designer at

That is one thing that I can say is that I do love to play along in challenges, so of course I happily excepted their offer to join!

For their first weekly challenge (C4C210) in November, they would like to see your
BLACK, WHITE & a SPLASH of Color on your creation!
Sounds like so much fun I know...so hop on over and join in!
Here's what I came up with for the challenge:
I really love the look of the black and white designs, but don't make them that often, so this was really fun for me to put together!
I pulled out the elegant looking Layered Labels stamp set from Stampin' Up! and used several of my die cuts to layer the same image on top of itself.  I thought it would be good to add in my "splash" of color in the layer and along the border at the bottom of my design.  I've used Primrose Petals for my "splash" color of this design.
I also got to use up some more of huge stack of design papers I have hoarded for so long!  The black taffeta ribbon was actually the ONLY black ribbon that I could find that worked with my label I have it tied up to.  Then I just added some rhinestones to finish it off.
I've used three different dies and one border punch on my design here.  It pretty much did all of the work for me.  Don't forget to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to see what the design team has come up with inspiration for you!  Can't wait to see what you come up with! ;)

Here are some other challenges that I'd like to enter this in:
SCS HYCCT1331C - "I Can't Believe It's Over!" (black, white & pop of color:  PINK (team Holly)
Penny's Paper Crafty - Add Black or Bling

Thanks so much for popping in and I hope to see you playing along with us!
I will be back in the morning to share another creation with you!
