*First Card of 2008!*

Yup, I got to stamp yesterday! It took a while to find homes for my Christmas Stamping Goodies, but after that I decided to play. I wanted to play with all of my new Christmas Stamping Goodies, but guess what? I didn't end up using one new thing to make this card! The stamp set is new, sort of... it arrived about the time I started making Christmas cards so it has sat unused for a few months. I know, so sad!

I played and played... colouring, not colouring; layering, not layering.... and then I stamped this and loved how it looked.

Totally black and white. Not a stitch of colour. And I love it!

The plan had been to colour all those beautiful blooms with my new Copic Spica Glitter Markers... but that didn't happen.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White
*Images: Stampin' Up! Warm Words; Lizzie Anne Designs Floral Frenzy
*Ink: Black Pallette
*Embellishments: black and white polka dot sheer ribbon from Michaels

Nancy, I don't visit quite as often as I would like, but your cards are always so great, even the simplicity of the black and white. Hope 2008 is a Blessed one for you and your family. Pat
