Welcome back to my blog my friends.  Here it is Tuesday and time for another {Pin}spirational Challenge.

Our Sponsors this week are Eureka (Team 1) and they will award the winner 5 free digital images,

and Pink Petal (Team 2).

Check out this beautiful photo for our inspiration.

I thought it would be fun to use the black/white colors to create my card.

Isn't she gorgeous.  I really don't think I've done her justice, but it was fun playing with her hair. ;)
