Anyhow, on to today's card! This one is for Speedy the Cat's friends Challenge #43, which is to use black, white, and one other color. My card base is black onyx from Gina K. Designs. My DP is from DCWV, Mango Frost collection. The stamps are from my new Mark's Finest set called Greet The Day with Gerber and I just love them! For embellishments, I used some dotted organza, and a big sugared flower from Prima. What do you think? Here is a peek at the inside.
Today I am off to the bridal fair which is being held at my daughters venue. We will get to meet the florist and the baker, plus taste some of the items for our cocktail hour. Sounds like fun, right? My DD is bringing her maid of honor and one bridesmaid (who is a stamper) and it will be nice to hear their thoughts. Have a glorious Sunday, my friends!

It's bitter cold here today and the wind is just whipping! I can take it since there is the promise of warmer weather this weekend! Wedding gown shopping on Saturday with my DD. That ought to be fun, huh? It is also a milestone birthday for her. I don't think she likes that part!

The recipe is as follows:
1. Use Coral/pink and Green for your colors
2. A Birthday Sentiment
3. Vintage Paper
4. Handmade or Punch flower
I used Pure Luxury card stocks and a layer of vintage paper from K&Co by Brenda Walton. My pink layer is embossed with a Sizzix EF, and highlighted with pink grapefruit VersaMagic ink. I love that color and go to it often as it is between a pink and a coral, and goes so well with many papers. I added stitching, crochet lace, and a satin cording. My sentiment is on a Nestie oval and is one of my favorites to use for a birthday. A simple HB on the inside is all that is needed.
Thanks for taking a look!

I did not want the week to get away from me, and miss the Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge. This week, we are to create a Valentine. I decided to combine it with the Color Challenge over at Stamp TV, which is to use red, black, and white. I just love that color combo!
My card stocks are Pure Luxury, Onyx Black, Red Hot, and Pure White. My poppy image is from Nina Brackett's stamp set called Hugs and Prayers. The sentiment is just a little clear stamp from Studio G. I colored with Copics, added touches of Diamond Stickles, wrapped with red and white bakers twine, and tied a bow through a vintage Abalone shell button. I added a border of tiny heart punches to jazz up the bottom. It is hard to tell, but the bottom of the front panel is cut shorter to show another row of colors.

The aim of this action is that we bring unknown, good blogs to light, so I would ask you not to blog fellow bloggers that already have 3,000 followers.
I chose 4 that I think deserve more followers than they have, because in my opinion they are very talented and make stunning cards...Please pop over and show them some love - honestly I promise you will NOT be disappointed.
