No White, No Problems

Here we are again, on a beloved Thursday!  That means it's time for another Ways to Use It challenge and this week, Collette is our fabulous hostess.  Collette has challenged us crafter's to NOT use white.  Boy, was that hard to contemplate.  I finally got around it with a little help from Sunday's Featured stamper, Tami Mayberry.  I saw a bunch of cards that were cased and stamped on patterned paper.  I'll tell you...a little light bulb went off for me.  I went in search of some light colored patterned paper and found this aged graph paper by Cosmo Cricket!  I grabbed another pattern from the same pack and went to town.  I used black ink and then repeated the polka dot pattern in my ribbon.  I also chose Blush Blossom for my card base because it matched the pattern paper pretty well. 
It's my first day on summer vacation and it's raining!  Hello, didn't the weather get the memo.....SUMMER vacation!  Oh well, I guess I will be making some more of my own sunshine later today, right after I make a pink card for National Pink Day.

Thanks for stopping by!
