~* With Love *~


Hi Everyone!

Hip Hip Hooray, the weekend is here :)!!!

Here is a simple card I made for the Gray is the New Black Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. The challenge is to incorporate gray in an innovative way. Come play along :)!

I admit, I tend to embellish a lot so it's hard for me to make a nice simple card. I made some felt rosettes (pink and dark gray) using a Sizzix die and added some pearl centers. I used some beautiful gray colored lace trim I picked up from a local dry good store. The stamped sentiment is from a Flourishes stamp set called Fanciful Flourishes.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!

I can imagine it must have been difficult for you not to embellish to much (I know I couldn't, LOL!) but look at that lace and that sentiment, now they really stick out! Great job! Hugs, Ira and have a lovely weekend, hope you're feeling much much better now!
