Sneak Peek - For Always

Here is another sneak peek at a new paper pack in the Spring Summer Idea Book! This paper is called For Always (X7165). The 6 different patterns are all black and white.  This paper looks great with pops of colors.  I used Ruby for my pop of color on this card based on the colors in the Dynamic Duos Color Challenge.   I based my card on the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketches.

No stamping on this card!  I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge (Z1790) to cut my shapes - even the tulip shape flower with the flourishes.  The Black Tulle Ribbon (Z1798) creates the bow pulled together by a button from the new Black Assortment (Z1821).  I used bitty black sparkles from the Black and Grey Sparkles (Z1754) on the tulip.   I decided not to add a sentiment to the card.  I think it might have gotten lost in the pattern!  But, I really like the way this card came together.

Here is the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketches along with the Dynamic Duos colors:
