Power and Spark Challenge

"Black and White with a Pop of Color"

It is pretty simple to do a black and white card with just a "pop" of color.  
For me that colors has to be RED.  .
So I will simply get to the card that I did this afternoon 
while enjoying my quiet Mother's Day.
After the kids called and the messages send, I went right to my craft room 
and have been there ever since.  I will take a break and do some other things, 
but first my card for this challenge.
 I used Gina K cardstock in white and black for this card.  I had to make my background paper.  Goodness knows that I have plenty, but not any that are just back and white.  I used the Perfect Plaids stamp set and the new Amalgam ink from Gina K.  The stamp for the image is Power Poppy, Farmers Market.  It leads perfectly to the black and white and red that I wanted to use. 
 A little peek at the inside.

A close up of the red apples and I just had to color the leaves too.  I am using a different set of Copic markers than I usually do for the red.  This time it was R32, R37, R39, and R56.  
I will be entering this in the current Power and Spark challenge at Power Poppy.  
Thanks for stopping by to see my card.  I do very much appreciate that you take time to leave comments.
