What's Black and White and Very Pretty?

A card made with the beautiful Skipping Stones Design Dandelion Dreams stamps! Yes, my friends, it's time for a new sketch challenge over at Skipping Stones and this is a GREAT one, you guys! It's SO easy to use so you should totally play along 'cause you could totally win free stamps and that would be, like, totally awesome, dudes. Just sayin'.

I created this card using the sketch, which I, of course, flipped on it's side because I can never seem to do things the easy way. I'm sort of crazy like that. No. For reals, though. I'm kinda nuts.

Floral Black and White Card


I used the beautiful background paper from Crate Paper's Portrait collection (I love that collection. Lots. And lots. Just sayin'.) Along with some very pretty ribbon from May Arts! YAY! As for that GORGEOUS frame...YUP! Totally used the new Grand Calibur for that one!! Can I even TELL you how much I'm loving that machine? Seriously. It's pretty awesome and stuff. For reals.

Black and White Floral (detail 2)


I added just a few little rhinestones off of one corner to give it a little extra something. I like 'em.

Sooo...now that you have taken a look at my card, I know you totally want to see more! Head on over to the Skipping Stones blog to check out what the entire team did! They pretty much rock, so it will totally be worth your time. I promise.

As for me...I'm going to try to forget about the hot tea that exploded on my hand a couple of minutes ago and enjoy my Dulce de Leche Cheerios. After that, well, I'm sure I will attempt to do something productive, I just KNOW IT! I hope you have a Totally Terrific Tuesday! Tee-hee!
