Black & Kraft - Love It!

Over at Dynamic Duos, the latest challenge is to pair Black with Kraft and I have to say I love this combo! Especially having seen the other examples. Mind you I've only got a few hours left before the deadline is up. I'll be uploading by the skin of my teeth, yet again.


I have to say, that until I saw this challenge, I thought brighter colours worked best with Kraft card but I've changed my mind. How could I forget my own mantra, that black goes with simply everything. And does so with such style. In fact there's another colour challenge this week (over on ColourQ) which lets you pair black with any hue of your choice. If I have time, I wouldn't mind making a card for that too.

That's such a YOU card Paul! Your restraint is to be applauded...clean and stylish as ever. How many of us could resist highlighting that image with white? I know I couldn't! Lindsay x x :)

Great card Paul, as always. Every time I see your cards I think I need to make some, then I get distracted by something else. One day I'll get to it. How did you get such a neat perforated edge around the middle piece? That's something I like but can NEVER get it to look that good.
