plus add something shiney...


Is this a crazy cool sketch of what! Truly Scrumptious has this as their challenge #3. It's my first time playing at their playground and what a sunny day it is. Here's my take on the sketch with a little BR-T fine tuning...


For this card I embossed the white flowers onto black cs for the base of the card. I cut a 3 1/2 " circle from Kiwi cs and distressed the edges found a scrap of Orchid Bouquet cs distressed edges and stamped with black dots.The image space is random stamping with Kiwi,Orchid Bouquet, and Baby Blue and matted on black cs and popped up. I made a BR-T decision to incorporate the sentiment onto the circle as well as the tag which I really like! The bottom border is two scraps scalloped with my circle cutter and distressed added some black ribbon some bling and fashioned a flower for the final touch. All product used are Close to My Heart except the black ribbon , black cs and the bling. The following image is a detail of the flower...

I like the style. The black, green and pink go very well together; I could see an entire room or home decorated in them. Those colors seem to pervade the other pieces too, though. You ought to experiment and see if you can find any other good color schemes.

Gorgeous card! Your white embossing on black textured cardstock is SO good. That is not an easy thing to do cleanly. I chickened out on my black and white card! Love it all.
