If I had to Choose Only 2 Cardstock Colours...

Black and white - absolutely. No contest - black and white go with everything!

Here's black and white with blue....her favourite. (Hmmm....just realised the background doesn't actually look very white in this photo.....)

Layout Title: "Happy Happy Birthday Dear Beth"
Sharon is Feeling Very Singaporean :
Its probably not very clear (cos its in the background) but I 'enlarged' a 6X6" square of GCD parisian labels pattern paper into an 9X9" square. Here's how:

1.
Cut all the labels apart from the patterned paper (this would work with any other pattern that has many 'pictures' on it)
2. Spread them out on your larger piece of cardstock (or in my case chipboard).
3. Whitewash the whole piece, carefully painting around the images.
4. See, you save money and it looks artsy at the same time! How Singaporean is that!

I wish the weather wasn't so Singaporean today....sigh.

Hey Sharon, just like you, I tend to buy only white and black cardstock, as well as kraftpaper (yummie!!!!). Needless to say then I love your LO, the colour palette is very eyecatching, bold and romantic at the same time ... how do you do it???!!!! Lovely work!
