Ebony and Ivory

It is challenge day with my friends as the CCEE Stampers Blog.
Frances brings us this weeks challenge.

Did you know that the 25th January is National Opposite Day?  For our challenge this week make a card/project that has opposites on it. Think opposite colors on the color wheel, stripes and polka dots, black and white, mirror image, etc.

 I chose the colours Ebony and Ivory and they just happen to be stripes and polka dots too.
I stamped the dress 3 times and fussy cut them and layered each layer with foam dots.

I used the Base die, the front panel die and the insert panel die from the Center step die set.
Here is the side view showing the layers.

I have combined this card with the challenge I do with my Friends each month. Our challenge was to use something new. The dress and the verses were inked for the first time.

Cheery Lynn Center Step die, spellbinders die.
Stampendous -Tiered dress
Verses - Good Friends, Fashionably late.
Ribbon, copic pens,gemstones,foam dots, DCWV La Creme Stack, Antique Linen distressed ink. 

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs.
