You're So Not My Sweetheart! Challenge at Guylou's

It's challenge time over at Guylou's Inimitability and, our lovely and talented teamie Kim, has chosen such a fun theme for you all to play along with!! 

Instead of making a Valentine for your sweetie, Kim is challenging us to make a project for someone other than your significant other AND to include the color Black.

For my creation today, I used the beautiful Bernadette image in the GI online store.  Bernadette is also part of the Retro Beauties set which includes three other fabulous leading ladies!

I paired her with the hilarious and oh-so-perfect sentiment from none other than TLC.  I have a lot of friends who this card would be perfect to send to that share the same sentiment :)  The card is a hybrid of some old Martha Stewart glittery cs and some digi paper which you can find at BirdsCards for free by clicking here!  I lightly distressed the edges of the image and sentiment in some black distress ink just to add a little more definition. 

You have until February 16th to play along and we sure hope you do!! One lucky winner will receive quite a prize pack:  a $10 gift certificate to Guylou's online store as well as a Guest Designer spot for an upcoming challenge!

So come on over to Guylou's and show us what ya got!!
