Scrap Whispers Challenge #79

This is Tippi Hedron who stared in Hitchcock's "The Birds". It just seemed fitting that her pic is in Black and White since her film was in black and white.

Okay~ so I am doing challenges backwards.

Georgina~thanks for the heads up that challenges were due TODAY.
This is how the challenge read on the blog "We challenge you to craete a card or layout using black and white.You can use either a color photo with nothing but black and white papers and embellishments OR you can use a black and white photo with a clored background OR you can use a black and white photo with a black and white background"
