SFF102414 Swallowtail

Hello stampers,
     Happy Frenzy Friday y'all! Hope the week has been good to you & that you have some great plans for the weekend. I'm not sure what mine are at the moment, but I'm sure it will include doing more winterizing on the house, oh joy!
     I've hosted a black & white swap for many years on my VC Rocks group and lately I've been looking through a black & white lens. I'm not exactly sure why, but I've tried adding color wherever I can which lately has been fall like colors. But for today's card, I decided to stick with the black & white. I've seen some really beautiful cards made with this stamp, which convinced me I needed the stamp, however, this is the first time I've used it.
      For this card I stamped the Swallowtail Background Stamp at a diagonal on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and backed it with a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with only 3 sides showing. I added the 1/8" Black Taffeta Ribbon to the top of the stamped piece. I then used the Back To Basic DSP as an added bonus to the sketch. Easy Peasy!
     This week's sketch was created by Elizabeth Harris. Hop on over to the SFF blog & check out what the other team members did. Better yet, make your own card based on the sketch below & add your link to this week's challenge. Happy sketching!
