Don't adjust your television sets...

Happy Wednesday everyone! I've been seeing the most amazing cards in b&w and wanted to try my hand at it. What better image than a classy Teen Anya? The card came together quickly, as long as you have W and C copics, the grays are really fun to play with. I decided to make mine look like a hanging photo, so I cut out a scalloped frame and found some DCWV papers that looked a little like wall paper. ;)
I am also going challenge happy with these wonderful sites:

One Stitch At A Time: Say It With Shapes (ovals and scallops, diamonds and circles)
Paper Cutz: Anything Goes
Tuesday Morning Sketches: Current layout
Stampin' Royalty: Monochromatic Neutrals
Scrap Creations: Ribbon, Pearls and flowers

Thank you so much for coming by today! Before I go, I just wanted to wish our sweet DS a Happy 15th Birthday! Kalil is the type of teenager that loves hanging out with his family, watches the cooking network with his Grammy when she visits, dreams of going home to Hawaii where he was born, and is always so compassionate and caring when one of his friends is having a hard day. {Unfortunately, that makes girls swoon...and call A LOT!}
Here he is practicing his form for the homemade carrot cake I'm baking for him today:

heehee! And showing off some biceps, obviously. ;)
Have a beautiful Wednesday everyone, may it be full of smiles and accomplishments! ♥
