Friday: Workin' the Black and the Rose is a Burst

I had fun with this's simple..but the awesome paper has so much pizazz, you just gotta fly with it.

The surprise element/shape is the burst behind the sledder...

that's a rose!

Yup, even a delicate shape can pass for something cool/masculine if it's the right color and edged in black.

Speaking of black...

the black cardbase and black ink are in honor of BLACK FRIDAY for

I'm also submitting this to

The sentiment is from the Snowglobe set ~it matches the masculine feel of this card and it fits the trimmed die from the PTI Movers and Shakers Spinners Collection.

I REALLY wasn't planning on going out shopping today...but I have to get TP.

  4. What a great card! Very non-traditional (color wise) and I love it!
