A New Year

I made this card for 2 challenges: the OWH Stars and Stamps mid-week throwdown which is to use "spring flowers".......and the Simon Says Stamps challenge which is "new something." The Memory Box Prim Poppy is a new die I just got and I paired it with some black card stock and PTI bitty box basic's dsp in a bright pink color. It's pretty simple in design, using a MS doily border punch, a computer generated sentiment, and the word window and fancy label punches from SU! The only other embellishment I added was a pair of black mini brads and this card was done. I made 3 of these in different colors for my next OWH box.

Thanks for checking in with me again today! I know it's Wednesday but it feels more like a Monday to me!

I like your new poppy die and it looks great against the black. Super card!!!
My days are mixed up, too. Hubby went back to work today after being home for more than two weeks. I've been confused about the days for the whole time he's been off work. LOL

This card is super sweet. Love that die and it really pops against the black. The pink is gorgeous with the black also. All around nice job, Carol.

I love the pink and black combo you used, Carol.

I made my card for the MWT before I checked out the Inlinkz and I can't get over how similar our cards are. :) Thanks for sharing!
