Firstborn: Mama, I got a good joke.
Firstborn: Mama, what's black and white and red all over?
Me: (Grinning, because I already know the answer...)That's not a joke, that's a riddle.
Firstborn: Ok. Mama, I got a good riddle.
Firstborn: What's black and white and red all over?
Me: Hmm, I don't really know...
Firstborn, in a fit of giggles: A newspaper, silly. Get it? Not the color red but read like you are reading.
Me: Hah, that's a good one.
The Play Date Cafe is having one of their famous Color Splash Challenges, to create a black and white card with a splash of red. I was also inspired by the current card over at CASE Study Challenge, created by the fabulous Dawn of Wplus9 herself.
The background panel was stamped with two images from Poinsettia Patterns in black and then with a dot from another set I added some pink with glimmer mist for a cohesive look. I'm not sure what the deal is with blogger, but you can see these details better if you click on the image and it becomes life size. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
