FYI #28 and WMS #94

Just a magical (if unreal) combination of colours.  A very different picture to the one that is outside my window at the moment - grey and dark.  I know it's nearly winter but the weather has changed so quickly - last week it was near 30C.

So here is my entry for these 2 challenges.  I was stumped with what to do with the strip down the middle so used a flourish as a border.  It didn't leave a lot of room for a sentiment but just got one in.

What you need
Cardstock - American Crafts dark pink: SU black, white;  PTI Summer Sunrise
Stamps - WMS Fancy Phrases, Florentine Frippery, Join Us
Ink -  Memento Tuxedo Black;  Versacolor Raspberry
Die - SB Tags
Punch - MS butterfly
Ribbon - ?
Gems - Kaisercraft 


  1. WOW, beautiful those clouds! here it is a lot of rain in spring. Your card is very nice. Love from Holland.

  2. Gosh, what a stunning entry! Your flourish border works so perfectly with that ornate label die cut. And I love the punched butterfly--looks great in these colors!

    I'm so sorry your local resources are not better. I am so fortunate as to be within 5-20 minutes of two independent stamping stores as well as Michaels, Hobby Lobby, JoAnns, and Archiver's. If you ever visit my area I'd be glad to take you on a tour!

  3. Love the dramatic touches of colour with the open white and black, looks great, nice use of the sketch too.... thanks for playing along with the Mischief Makers this week!

  4. Oh I love the way you used the flourishes for that center element! Super job!

  5. I love this! Brilliant idea using the flourishes like that. I love all the elements of your card and the way you put them together. Thanks for sharing this with us at WMSC! :)
