A Day in the Life of Black and White

I have a quick share for you today. I made a CAS card for one of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges on SplitcoastStampers and aside from never getting a decent photograph of the card AND the sentiment at the bottom, I had overcome a fear while creating this card.

I fear grayscale coloring so this card was my personal challenge for the month. I did give myself an exception to use color on anything organic, but I must have been enjoying the grayscale because I left out the tree and wreath in the window, and I'm sure that the bags and clothing would be consider organic. I did catch myself saying that I enjoyed coloring in grayscale, so I must have conquered the fear this time around.
