Play Date Cafe Challenge 46

This week the challenge at Play Date Cafe is a 'Color Splash' -- black and white with a splash of gold, copper, or pink. I chose this Japanese scene from About Art Accents. I stamped black on glossy white and used the copper to highlight the roofs. The black frame is done using the torn paper frames technique from the Dec 2008 issue of Technique Junkies. The white card base was dry embossed using one of the Asian Cuttlebug folders. The sentiment is from Club Scrap. It's really a striking card in person.
