HM Black & White, No Flowers Card

The House Mouse Challenge right now is "Black & White" and the challenge at Craftycardmakers is "No Floral Embellishments" so...I came up with this sort-of simple card. I was SO tempted to put a little pink on Mudpie's ears and nose like I usually do but restrained myself and actually followed the "black & white ONLY" rule!

Items used:
House Mouse Stamp* - "Contented Mudpie" -
(colored with colored pencils)
Stampcraft Stamp - "Thank You"
StampingScrapping Design Border Stamp* - "Tab Basics 1", die matching stamps
Stampabilities Ink - Dye Ink, black
Cardstock, all from my stash
Queen & Co. Pearls* - "Snowflake"
Black ribbon  - from my stash

*these items came be found/purchased at

I am entering this in the 2 challenges mentioned above: - #111 "All Black & White ONLY" - #59 "No Floral Embellishments"

Thanks for stopping by today! If you have a moment, please leave a comment so I know you were here!

SUCH a lovely card! Your choice of DP and the pearls are so very elegant. You've created a gorgeous card with no color! (I know what you mean about being very tempted to add just a wee bit to the mousie!)
