Key to happiness...

After missing couple of weeks BearyBox sketch challenges, I sure am glad that I'm able to join in the rest of the Design Team this week.

And make sure to join the rest of the Design Team for this weeks challenge and BearyBox would like to give this week's winner a goodies bag consist of 7gypsies, American Crafts and Creative Imagination products!

I envision something else when I saw this weeks sketch but when

I was trying to put it together, it just came out completely different.
Still debating if I was happy with it but just didn't have enough time to create another card to be submitted. The sentiment is a clear sticker by Cloud 9 Design adhered to a Whisper White card stock and matted with Basic Black card stock with Back sheer ribbon and what a perfect way to finished it with a key charm.

Hi Catherine

I just loved your card too. Right up my alley.... classic simple but timelessly stylish. And what is not to love about black & white!
