There is just something sophisticated and noteworthy about black backgrounds. The intense dark color brings the best out of the colors you place on top of it! Your challenge is to pair up a black background with some of your favorite florals. Play around with bright color combos, textures and bold sentiments. Replicate an exact layout from one of the cookies above or come up with your own!


 -Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am ET and 11:30pm ET on January 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge".

-Only one entry per person please.

-Customers & participants alike can peruse all of the links and absorb all of the amazing inspiration that will be shared!

-After you have made your way through the list, simply return to our forum and participate in all of the fun!

Keri H

Keri H created a heart-shaped card that is a perfect complement tot the love theme and upcoming Valentine holiday. Loving her florals and the small touches of sparkle. Just gorgeous!


Melanie Ann MacKenzie

Melanie Ann MacKenzie kept her color scheme simple with black and red. Definitely an elegant project with lots of depth and detail. The small tag as an addition for the sentiment is a great finishing touch.



Sarah T. put together her project with a focus on the black background. The pops of blue really jump out in contrast to the dark card base. The strip of patterned paper on the left really creates a nice sense of balance.

Congratulations to all the winners! Please be sure to send an email to customer service and provide them with your full name and the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thanks to everyone for playing along!
