hi



Hi everyone! I'm having a great lazy Saturday! I did get a chance to make this card for K. Werner's Color Challenge before the deadline this evening. It is a VERY simple card because these colors are difficult to work with for me because I have limited supplies. I do not have any ink colors except white. They're very pretty, but a challenge to work with. I needed to use more black with it, but I refrained from using it to stay within the challenge requirements.

Today, I'm watching CNN as President-Elect Obama is making his way to DC. It is great to see City Hall in Baltimore full of people knowing I used to live only a few blocks from there while in graduate school. Later, I am going to probably nap, eat, and watch a few movies before finishing up some projects I'm working on. I hope you all enjoy your Saturday and hopefully, I'll be back with a post tomorrow! So, if you're cold like me, stop by Kristina's site to see all of the challenge posts. There are over 200 entries...WHOA! I'm going to start clicking!

Instructions:
  1. Make card base by trimming ruby red cardstock to 4.25" x 11", then score at 5.5".
  2. Stamp scallop square on ruby red cardstock using watermark ink, then heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  3. Cut stamp into a square and mat on a pink cardstock square.
  4. Add rhinestones to the scallop square flowers.
  5. Trim orange polka dot and white ribbons, then adhere to card base.
  6. Adhere square to card base.

Simple. Chic. Simply chic. said...

I just love your style....its so classy. I have to remind myself to keep it simple. But when I do it, it looks...simple. When you do simple, its classy. Sigh.

I love this A LOT! I have that stamp set in Spanish.

We were watching CNN today too. We're pretty excited about the inauguration. My husband said we should visit D.C. one of these days. I would love to.
