Salt & Pepper Challenge

Okay, so I almost dismissed this challenge thinking I'd never be able to make a salt & pepper layout with only black, white, and one other color.  But, then suddenly I had a leftover zebra that I'd colored and poof, I had a vision for this page!
So for the black and white, I used some retired Night & Day DSP (one of my faves!).  I decided to go with Concord Crush as my accent color.  I don't end up using a lot of this color since it's so bold, so this was actually a great opportunity for me to use some of my pieces up!  Halleigh's shirt had some cute little purple flowers, so I thought it would highlight that color as well.
And here is another animal from Zoo Review - the zebra.  I actually made it yesterday to go with my giraffe page, but decided it didn't really fit the color scheme, so it was really perfect for this page about the View from our balcony.

Stamps:  Zoo Review
Ink:  Concord Crush, Memento black ink, Copic
Paper:  Whisper White, Night & Day DSP, Cheerful Treat DSP
Accessories:  Basic Black satin ribbon, 1 3/8" circle punch, retired scalloped journaling cards, Stampin' Write marker.
