Hi

My blogging friends, Kristy and Jules, both work at a local scrapbooking store in Australia, and I just joined that store's message board. So, I've been checking in at the Scrapsidaisy message board, and I discovered that they also have card challenges at a site called CopyCatCards. The first challenge I did was to make an orange, black, and white card. Though they didn't say that it couldn't be a Halloween card, I challenged myself NOT to make it a Halloween card, and this is what I came up with.


I used gorgeous Heidi Swapp black and white patterned paper. The ink distressed chipboard flower is by Chip Chatter, and I added a Making Memories brad for the flower center. I used vinyl thickers for the sentiment, and I stamped an Autumn Leaves swirl stamp next to it. I then attached some Maya Road sheer ribbon with a trio of rhinestone brads. To finish it up, I added white sheer ribbon.

It's raining, and it's going to rain all weekend. Looks like I need to plan some indoor fun! Have a great Friday and a fantastic weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
