Black & White plus One...

If the path be beautiful, let us not ask where it leads. -Anatole France
It's Friday! Friday means Blogger's Challenge and this week the challenge was to use Black, White and 1 other color. While I was trying to figure out what to do I saw this week's Crazy 4 Challenges Inspiration picture and the Polka Dots Jumped out at me, I have had this piece of Black and White Polka Dotted paper on my desk for Ages so I decided to play with it! It is actually a piece from a Prima Package (I think it was Prima?) I decided to go CAS and just add a splash of pink...kinda feels 50's Sock Hop to me! LOL :)

Supplies: Stamps: None Paper: White & Sweet Blush CS (PTI,) Piece of Packaging Ink: None Misc: Prima Rose, Stardust Stickles, Grosgrain Ribbon
