Inkspirational Challenge #15

The new challenge over at the Inkspirational blog is a photo challenge.  With the Cherry Blossoms blooming in D.C. this was a perfect photo challenge.  My card:


The stamp and sentiment is a special edition from Simple Pleasures LSS in Colorado Springs, CO.  My SIL lives near the Springs and when I visit I love to take a shopping tour through Simple Pleasures!  Stamped with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink and embossed with clear EB.  Blossoms are colored with Tim Holtz Distressed Markers in Worn Lipstick and I distressed the edges with Worn Lipstick Distressed Ink.  Background DSP is "Shaffer" Almanac Collection from Prima.  I think I got this paper free at one of my "Scrapfest" crops.  I am also entering this in the Operation Write Home Midweek throwdown challenge, show your favorite color combination.  Black and Pink are such a gorgeous elegant color combo don't you think?


Have a great day!
Happy Crafting!
Donna

  4. Very pretty Donna! I agree that black and pink are great together and always result in a stiking effect. I really like the floral on top of the text in this too.
