Thinking of You


The challenge over at the Double D Challenge is to use black, white, and a pop of color. I die-cut a PTI scalloped banner with GinaK Wild Lilac cardstock for my pop of color. I die-cut 2 Darice swirl dies in black and white and placed one over the other, slightly staggering them for a little dimension. The dsp is from a black & white paper pad I bought some time ago that was missing a cover, so I have no idea who made it. I cut 3 fishtail banners with black, and heat-embossed the SNSS sentiment in white ep on the top one. The final touch was to add black and white sequins along with some scattered lavender gemstones.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're staying cool wherever you live. It's sweltering hot here in PA today, so I will be indoors stamping and staying cool!

Hubby and I went mall walking today in the air conditioning to keep cool and be able to get out of the house...we were experiencing a little bit of cabin fever with all this heat!

Carol, it's gorgeous! Love that pop of purple with the pretty leaf die swirling upward. The background paper reminds me of one of those coloring book pages. Pretty! Thanks for playing along with us at Double D!
