Black and White--It's Alright

There I was moving random things around on my craft desk today when I ran across a triple flip card base that I die cut several months ago and then rejected for being too white. Since the card base was totally usable I left it on my desk and moved it from one pile to another. I'd uncover it from time to time but it never inspired me.
Until today! When I found it today I immediately felt that it needed to be made into a black and white card. For a little while there I toyed with the idea of making the flowers hot pink for a pop of color, but my desire to have it be just black and white persevered.
After dinner I sat down at my computer and started visiting some blogs and ran into one black and white card after another. I thought it interesting that we all got called by the same muse. Only, it turns out that everyone else' muse was the latest Double D challenge. I was adamant that I wasn't influenced by it until I decided to join it and went over it. Yeah, I remember glancing at those cards before and I'm sure my subconscious latched onto Kathy's card. So thanks, everyone for helping me finally use this card base that has been languishing for so long!

Way to go PJ. This is a totally awesome monochrome card. Love it just as it is, but the hot pink flowers would also have been a good alternative.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
