Black challenge at MSL

Today starts a new challenge at Magnolia Stamp Lovers and the challenge is black.

For my creation I made a card featuring Edwin wants a hug. My DH is soon to celebrate his 50th birthday and since 50 is the BIG 50 black is appropriate. 001 (Small)

I used the following supplies:

Here is a close up of Edwin

A picture of the front with the adhesive squares. By the way, these things are awesome! They are the perfect size for Nestabilities and the smallest parts of the Magnolia images.

And finally a pic of the inside.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Hope to see you over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers.

Red, black and white are my favorites. You did a great job coloring with the black and I assume greys. I have such a hard time coloring Edwins pants with black, I always end up making them blue or brown. I love it.
