Less Is More - Black, White and a teeny bit of colour!

Good Morning!
Happy new year to you all, especially Chrissie, Mandi, Jen and all you fabby LIMettes!

So this week, the challenge at Less Is More is Black, White and a hint of colour. This is what I came up with...

I wanted something simple and wanted to use a stamp set I haven't used yet. I stamped the quatrefoil onto paper first to soften the ink before staming onto my card. I used Cajun Craze. I usually use red or pink with B&W but I felt like a change!

I had originally made this as a one layer card but it just didn't look quite right so I cut the panel out and mounted onto a new card blank...I think it's much more effective.

Supplies used:
Stamps - Summer Silhouettes, Petite Pairs
Ink - Basic Black, Cajun Craze
Pearls from stash
