I'm here to share a card for 3 separate challenges:
IBSIC #31 - Halloween Photo Inspiration. We were asked to use ORANGE, BLACK AND CREAMS/WHITES as the main color:
Dynamic Duos Challenge #25 - This week's combo is orange and black:
And The Paper Players #18 - It's all about the fun theme: FRAMES:
The base card is Whisper White and is matted with Pumpkin Pie cardstock. The orange layer is SU DSP Patterns Pack and the black is from The Little Yellow Bicycle Swoon 6x6 Paper Pad. I used the labels 3 Spellbinders to make the mats for the 2 orange flowers. They were cut from the Blossom Party Die and the leaves are from the bird punch. The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Banners. Lastly, I added 4 tiny black rhinestones to each corner of the card!
On a personal note:
After months of emailing back and forth, I finally met in person one of my sweet blog friends, Penny, from http://pennyline.blogspot.com/. About a month ago, she invited me to accompany her to the Scrapbook Expo. This is where 70+ vendors come out and display their goodies at the Ontario Convention Center, from stickers, paper, embellishments, copic markers, glitter and much more. We had a blast! To my surprise, she made this beautiful box, as a gift for me:
This is a closer look from the top. She added buttons, ribbon, pearls, flowers...But wait, there's more...
When I opened the box, I found all this!
Lots of pretty lace and ribbons! My jaw dropped! I loved it all! and who wouldn't :) She owns an Etsy Store, which you can find on her blog, and where you can purchase any of this loveliness too!
We are planning a get together during the Christmas holidays, and another trip to next year's Scrapbook Expo!
Thanks for stopping by,
