Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop {Black Backgrounds}

Black Backgrounds
 
 
Last month's PTI Blog Hop Challenge was all about White
This month it's all about Black!
 
 
I had fun making this one.  I knew I wanted to use squares, so I die cut a bunch from white, pink, and two shades of red.  I drew one, straight, diagonal line and started working from there.  Then, when most of the real estate was taken, I started building up!
 I can't wait to see your designs!
 
 
New projects have been added to this week's Friday Inspiration File...#101.
I'll be back soon to announce the winner of my 100 Weeks Of Inspiration Challenge.
