Thanks a million

Hi and happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

How many of you play along with challenges? I have been trying to participate in more challenges. My card today is for last weeks color challenge on Stamp TV. This one was a bit hard for me. The colors were black, white and green, a color combo I would not normally pick. I really struggled with a main image for the card. My creativity was sleeping when I made this card because for the life of me I could not come up with anything that would make a good focal image for the card in either white, black or green. So I went with a non-stamped focal image, Primas.
The Prima's were embossed with a cuttlebug folder to give them a bit of texture. I threaded white organdy ribbon through black buttons and attached them to the center of the prima's.
The sentiment if from Gina k's Thanks a Million stamp set which is also part of the new Signs of Autumn Stamp TV kit.
The sentiment was stamped with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink on Gina's white layering weight pure luxury paper and cut out with oval nestie's. Before I removed the sentiment from the nestie, I sponged certainly celery ink over it.
Really not much to this card but it sure was a challenge for me! lol!
