Blogger's Challenge #137: Black, Red and White

Lisa as given us one of the most elegant color combinations to work with this week:  Red, Black and White.  My Stampin' Up! color choices were:  Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White. 

I am trying to hit a grand slam (Twins' Baseball spring training begins at the end of this month!) by meeting these challenges, all with one card:  1.  A thank you to one of my Stampin' Up! party hostesses (hi J!...look in your mailbox soon!)  2.  Blogger's Challenge  3.  Mojo Monday sketch and 4.  Using a new technique from the Technique Junkies latest newsletter. I succeeded!

Here's the Mojo Monday sketch:
The technique is called Mono Dies and it's from the February/March 2010 issue.  I have a link to Technique Junkies in my sidebar...go check it out!

Finally, here's the Grand Slam (complete with using the Scallop Trim Border punch which you can get for free through the Sale-a-Bration promotion.  Email me or check out my SU website for more details.  http://www.lisabohler.stampinup.net/):

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to see what the other girls did with this fabulous color combination!
