This week's inspiration photo from OTWC:
So at first I was so excited about these! I love working with black and couldn't wait to do it. But then it became hard to incorporate the other two colors. Initially, I wanted to make a shaped card and thoughtI'd do a circle and make colored dots on it. But it didn't quite work out the way I wanted. I ended up mounting the black circle card to the front of a rectangle.

Then, I used my Cricut to cut the dots using the Accent Essentials cartridge. I also added a few more dots with my hole punch too. The ribbon originally had an orange stripe in the middle. I cut a strip of black cardstock and glued it onto the ribbon to make it match. I attached everything to the card and then stamped a very simple sentiment. That's it.

Notice that this card was made only for the Off The Wall Craftiness challenge? I feel bad always doubling up cards I make for her challenges with other challenges. So I told myself this week her cards would be just for her challenge. : )
