Retro Sketches #47, Dynamic Duos # 37, Inkspirational Challenges #4

This week's sketch from Retro Sketches:

Plus these colors from Dynamic Duos:

...and this challenge from Inkspirational Challenges:

I didn't do a full CASE of this card, but I was inspired by the strip being a 'negative' element, and so that is what I incorporated into my card...

Equals this card from me:

Super dark/overcast day today, so.... not very great photographs.

I love it when I'm browsing challenges, and some of them just seem to fit together perfectly.  I don't really have to do any just all falls together.  I do admit, that I don't always love the results, but at least I didn't waste a whole lot of time on it...ya know?  There's nothing worse than spending a ridiculous amount of time on a project, and hating the outcome.

Cardstock - Stampin' Up! (Whisper White, Basic Black)
Patterned Paper - Stampin' Up (6x6 Designer Series Paper - Ruby Red)
