It's A New Day!

The wind has calmed and from what I see on the news, many old trees have not survived it's wrath. I mean this wind knocked down walls! One big old tree fell and split a 3 story house right down the middle. I have a few things overturned, such a a big log rack, and a couple of limbs down. Very Lucky!

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!
