Another Black & White Card

I thought I would try another card for today's SCS Limited Supply challenge. I used the new Printed Window Sheets for the background design and the saying is from the Matchbox Messages stamp set - both available for purchase on April 1st. The card was a little hard to take a picture of because the window sheets are very reflective. Laying it on a blue blanket worked the best. The new window sheets are interesting and looked like etched glass. I love the Organza Whisper White Ribbon, it is so sheer and elegant! Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend!

Inks: Basic Black
Papers: Whisper White, Basic Black

Black & White Viola Card

Black & White - Today's SCS Limited Supply Sketch. I have admit that this was a little hard for me to come up with a card, but I think it turned out ok.

That makes 2 in one day! I made this card for the SCS Weekend Sketch and used the new Scallop Oval Punch that is available to order April 1st. It fits inside the large oval punch perfectly.

No Posts

Sorry about not posting any projects lately. Richard has been in the hospital since the end of February and I haven't had a whole of time to do much of anything! The good news is that he might come on Wednesday. Long/short story - he had an imflammation in his lower intestines that eventually led to a small hole, and he had to have emergency surgery.

I am still planning on having my stamp camp on Sunday, March 22nd at 2:00 p.m., and we will be using products from the new Spring Mini!
