Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring "I Gave You My Heart" from Gorjuss Girls

Hello and welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!   Hope everyone is having a great week.  It was nice to have the extra holiday but gosh, this weekend went by way too fast.  Did it fly by for you?  October itself felt like a blur and now I'm bracing myself for the next few months which are going to be busy busy!!!

Anyways, enough of my rambling and on to our challenge....This week we have a fun one which is "Black and White" or "Sepia"!  

Our wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge is Sweet N' Sassy Stamps!!

Here is my card...

So I don't really have the copic colors for Sepia (that I know of anyways! :)) and decided to go with Black and White. Also, I never really thought to use this cute Gorjuss Girls image called "I Gave You My Heart".  I have always loved these Gorjuss stamps and had just purchased a few sets from the store.  But when I took her out, I really wanted to create something with her and now I am so happy I decided to use her in this "Black and White" challenge because she is so adorable!  Now I did decide to add a pop of light pink which I added with my Copic Sketch markers in Tea Rose to her cheeks.  The rest of her is colored using the cool grays.  I also used some Spun Sugar in distress inks to edge the papers and also the distress stickles to the centers of my white flowers and the heart on the paper she is holding.  I think it really looks so pretty to have the pop of color against the black and white!  The pretty papers I used for this project are from a collection called "Meadow Lark" by My Mind's Eye.  Really pretty double-sided black and white papers.  I used these papers also for the layered Spellbinders called "Labels Eight" behind this cute girl.  The flowers are a combo from Prima (The Printery Collection) and some white Recollections flowers.  The pearl spray is something I had in my stash.  The sentiment "You'll be in My Heart" is from a random stamp set I had in my stash.

Here are some additional supplies I used on my card:
Black Tuxedo-Memento Ink

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store!
