12/2 Wanted - Something Different!

Whew . . . I've been busy! But not so busy that I didn't have time to do this week's sketch challenge at Stamping 411! You might notice that I uploaded the sketch picture upside down - that was on purpose! Sometimes I like to flip sketches around - makes it more "me!"
.
I wanted to use a stamp set that had an image that I could use as my circle accent and that's when I found "Wanted." It was at the bottom of the pile . . . but not because I don't want it! lol! Just so happens that Christmas sets burying all my regular sets.
.
Black and White cards are so striking and when Stampin'Up introduced Night & Day Designer Paper in the Holiday Mini Catalog I was totally excited about making Black & White cards. But . . . didn't quite get around to it. Can you relate?
.
This card features vellum card stock . . . I didn't want to hide the awesome designer paper behind my horse image. It also features a clear button backed with black card stock. The button is threaded with a skinny strip of Whisper White paper. The whole circle accent is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
.
The sentiment that I put on the inside of my card comes from the set called Best Wishes & More. I like the words: laughter joy happiness bliss delight . . . who doesn't want that?
