My FIRST Challenge Card!!

Have I mentioned that I want to win A*Muse*A*Palooza?? On the A*Muse*A*Palooza blog, there are challenges and yep, you guessed it - I get points for participating in the challenges - and they are such fun! I have really wanted to participate in challenges before on SCS, but I've never quite gotten it together! But, with my desire to win this contest comes a much stronger motivation to participate!! So, here is my first challenge card. The challenge this week was to use only black ink. I gotta tell you, that's not a huge challenge for me! Lately, I have been doing lots of watercoloring, so I have been using A LOT of black ink, then coloring things in with various markers, crayons, pencils, etc. I decided to push myself a bit more and only use black and white on this card! I had received the pictured gift bag a while back, and have thought that it would make a neat card, so here is my attempt!! Thanks for looking!!

Stamps by A Muse &Autumn Leaves, ribbon from Michael's dollar bins, Marvy punches.

Here is the bag that inspired my card! Thanks Kay Forman!!
