Flashback Friday 20.0! Black and White Cards!

They are celebrating big time over at
The prizes are big and the fun is huge!  This week, the challenge is to find and enter your first black and white card! WOW, I realized halfway through my old posts that I didn't get up the nerve to make and post a card that was primarily all black and white until late 2010! 

This one I made for a male freind who's birthday is September 18th!
You can bet I will never miss that birthday again!
I still have to say that I like the simple monochrome colors. (or lack thereof)

Do yourself a favor and checkout the challenge!
I have yet to win anything, but it's just too much fun!
It is so eye-opening to go through your old projects and see again what you were doing then verses what you are doing now! 
Some cards, I just shake my head; others like this one, I still like.
