PTI’s January 2013 Blog Hop

by cbaptista on 01/25/2013

This month’s Blog Hop theme over at Nichole Heady’s blog is black backgrounds.  I made this card last week for the MIM #100 challenge and I loved how it turned out.  In thinking about what to create for the blog hop, I kept thinking about this card and wondering how it would look with a black background.  Wonder no more…this is how it turned out:

I love this card too.  It’s crazy what a difference a mere change in background color makes!

Here is the other card for comparison:

This was a fun and neat little experiment.  Love both looks!
