A new card

I got up very early (not because I wanted to but because I just woke up!) so I created a card using the colors on the SCS color challenge: real red, basic black and old olive. I need some notecards, so I created this one. I am trying to make cards with less bulk so they can easily be mailed. Here is what I came up with.



I love the fact that the JustRite stampers and the nestabilities are the perfect sizes to go together! It makes life so easy. And don't you just love that bottom border? So easy to do with the Spellbinders daisy border. Just cut and emboss and it looks maaaaahhhhhvelous!

Now I need to check my coupons, make a list, and go do a little shopping! Oh joy!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Oooh, I love this one: the monogram, the crisp colors and lines, but a bit of softness created by the adornment around the monogram. Nice.
