Today pink is the best...

Oh my goodness! Did we get alot of rain yesterday, last night and it is still raining this afternoon!
The weather today has me wishing I was sitting at my crafting table at home, stamping away instead of sitting at my desk here at work...and then I remind myself that I am lucky to still have my job the way the economy is. I pray every day for those that have been affected by the economy :-)

Today I am sharing a card I made a couple weeks ago for a color challenge on Stamp TV. The colors we were suppose to use were reds, pinks, black and I used white for my neutral.

I used Pure Luxury Black Onyx, Pure Luxury White Regal Road and a DCWV red. The dp is from Emily's Shabby Chick digi paper.
The sentiment is from Melanie's set The Best Things in Life and is cut out using the wavy rectangle nestibilities and matted on a scalloped rectangle. The border is a Friskar's punch in a leave pattern. I don't know why but using this punch is a challenge for me. One of these days I will be smarter than the punch lol!
I finished off the card with prima flowers and gray taffeta ribbon.

Thank you for visiting me today!

Good job - your card is very pretty - looks so spring like! We, too, are getting rain, thunder, lightning...I keep expecting the power to go out!

What a luscious card. We got some rain this evening, and while they said it was going to pour, but it was just moderate rain for about 2 hours, and that was that. I don't mind the rain...at least during this part of spring...it brings the flowers, much like those on your card. I really love your border punch. I don't think I've seen this one before. Fantastic job on your project.
