Black Accents

Alllll week I've been oooohing and aaahing over Sharon's black accents...especially the black butterfly punches by Martha Stewart. This past weekend I *almost* bought the punch at AC Moore...held off....but then yesterday gave in and bought it. I knew that was going to happen, LOL! So anyway, here's a card for Sharon's Challenge today, which was to use black accents. My black accents are obviously the black butterflies (with the wings raised), black brads, and the scallop punching at the bottom of the black panel (also a Martha Stewart punch).

I love this Inkadinkadoo image with the butterfly sitting on the bird nest.....also purchased at AC Moore a while ago.
