Stamp Simply "Little Black Dress"

It's Friday again (where did the week go?), and it's time for another Stamp Simply Challenge.

Here's what's going on this week: (ssnotime96) Little Black Dress - The staple of every woman’s wardrobe. Today’s challenge is to make a project of understated elegance using black and white. If you need to add in a little pop of another color, that’s fine, as long as the project is primarily black and white and its overall feel is that of understated elegance.

Here are the links to the gorgeous creations Sharon's team have made up to show you:
Sharon, Jennifer, Janine, Julie, AJ, Deb, Tammy, Barbara, Jenny. I have taken a peek at them...and they are beauties, I tell ya!!

My card and box are Black and Off-White...and there is a bit of Gray in there as well. (I hope that's okay.) I finally tried out my Matchbox Die, and the box was quite easy to put together. I was thinking of trying out one of the new SU Simply Adorned Charms (when they are available to purchase), and enclosing one inside the little box (after I decorate it, of course). This would make a lovely encouragement gift for a friend, don't you agree?
