Scrapmaster's Paradise Monthly Challenge

This card was made for Scrapmaster's Paradise monthly challenge. The object was to use the color black and Sami's stamps. I love these challenges 'cause they get me focused in one direction instead of getting overwhelmed with so many choices.

I used Sami's Poppy Field Summer Stamp set for the flower and the verse. It doesn't hurt to have a few extra sympathy cards in the stash! This flower set is so versatile. Check out her SP Stamps Blog or her gallery for more great ways to use this stamp set.

The only thing I might have done differently would be to use brads instead of bling on the sentiment frame. I was making this kind of late at night. Let me know if you have any questions.

Ink It Pink Challenge 15

I am entering this card in Pink By Design's current challenge to make a Halloween themed project. I know I saw the idea for this card on another blog but I can't remember which one. If anyone recognizes it let me know so I can give credit to them.

The card is not actually for Halloween but for Sweetest Day. I don't think Sweetest Day is celebrated in all parts of the country. It was probably started by American Greetings which is located in Ohio. Another way to get people to buy cards! : )  I hope you like it!
