Upsy Daisy

I have seen so many great cards made with this stamp; I finally had a chance to get it inky myself and to complete a couple of challenges! Yippee; I love when I can combine a couple challenges and knock them out. I'm learning to love challenges, it stretches your creativity but also gives you great layouts for later.

The two challenges featured on this card are:

SCS Sketch Challenge #208
Gina K Designs Black and White

The Sketch Challenge is a very simple layout and Gina knows what elegant cards can be made with only black and white!

The card is straightforward and very simple; a combination of PTI White, SU! White, SU! Basic Black and Cuttlebug's D'Vine Swirl embossing folder. The main image and saying are stamped with SU! Craft Black and embossed with black detail powder. I edged the final piece in black and added 3 black brads. I finished the card with some black and white polka dot ribbon from Michael's.

I hope you're having a great week and let me wish you a Happy New Year! May 2009 bring many blessings your way!

Thanks for popping in; hugs, ~M.
