Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Black, White and Red



 Well, Spring Break is now behind us and I only have 42 working days till Summer vacation!  I can do this! Hubby and I had a fabulous Spring break.  It all started with a visit with my sister and her hubby in Lakeland, and next we spent the day with some cousins in Fort Myers, and finally we got to spend a four days with our Son and his girlfriend in Savannah.  All in all it was a great week!  Okay, onto today’s card!  Over at Stamp TV my friend Donna is hosting a color challenge, and it’s Thursday so that means it’s time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  Over at Stamp TV the colors we were to use were: Red, Black and White.  They were pretty obvious weren’t they! LOL  Over at Seize the Birthday, our topping option this time around is Tall and Skinny.  Remember our Topping is always an option, if you don’t want to make a tall and skinny card this time around, then just link up a Birthday card!  It’s just that easy!  We would love to have you join us!  You should also go and see what my fabulous Design Team has done!  WOW!  Talk about a great variety of eye candy!

Here are some card details! I paper pieced my vase with a very old piece of SU paper.  I may have gotten a little carried away with the dots all over my card.  Everyone of the small tiny dots on the vase and inside the flowers were made from paper, except for the white dots in the very center of the flowers.  All the others were made with the smallest hole on the Owl SU paper punch. The black ones on the vase I added as well.  I loved putting this card together. The banner and the stitched panels are from MFT.  The stamp sets I used are both from Stamp TV; Birthday Labels and Flowers Bloom. I had to cut the sentiment apart and only use a portion of it as it didn’t quite fit.

Hope you have a wonderful day! Nanc’
