CPS157

I made this card for the CPS157 sketch found here. I immediately thought to use the Just-Rite stamps for this card after seeing the circles. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink on Bashful Blue card stock. I punched and layered it with black, and then stamped the outer ring with black on white PTI cardstock, then colored in a few spots with a bashful blue marker. The black circles were stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder using a different decorative border. I pulled the scrap of blue dp from my stash and matted it with a piece of black cardstock that was punched with the Fleur de lis border punch. I added a piece of ribbon and a few Kaiser black pearls to finish it. I don't know what prompted me to use the black and blue combination, but I really liked it once it was finished.
Thanks for stopping by and spending part of your day with me here - it's always nice to see you :)

Beautiful card, Carol. The black circles with the white embossed border are so cool... a great contrast to the main sentiment circle.
