You're In My Thoughts

I'm working on trying to use up the paper stash I've hoarded for so long, so for today's card I pulled out a SU! paper pad I've had forever. I believe these colors are Sahara Sand, and I coordinated everything with black & white. I'm also using the OWH Stars & Stamps sketch challenge #183. The flower was done with the SU! flower shop/pansy punch, and I added some black rhinestones to the center with Pizzazz Aplenty gemstones. The white panel was embossed with the SU! square lattice ef, sentiment by Hero Arts, and the finishing touches were some tiny white heart-shaped brads.

And now I'm going to go watch the race at the brickyard :)
{Go Smoke!!}

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Great use of your SU stash! I love a monochromatic card. You've given it nice punch with the black and white. Very elegant! I have a feeling I'm going to be using this OWH sketch a lot. You've really dressed it up without being too fussy.
