CC247 #2 (Check out the one below too)

I hate to admit just how DOPEY I really am, but when you hear what I have done, you will agree!!

Pat Smethers (that sweet girl) sent me the images from the SU set, Wild Wild West. You have to admit it's one of the best SU ever made. Many of us (and your names are safe with me) stupidly passed it by, and later regretted it so much that we were willing to do almost anything to get it. Now that I have it, wouldn't you think that the first opportunity to use it, I would??? Well, I made a flower card with these colors, and posted it (below). I really like it, but then LIGHT DAWNED OVER MARBLEHEAD, and I went back to my addict....um...craft room, and made THIS card. Better late than never, but it almost didn't get done. Dopey, right????

Anyhow, I really like this one better. Thanks for listening to my saga.

CC247 Dried Flowers

The colors for the challenge today are vanilla, black, and Soft Suede. Nice combination, huh??

This card almost made itself. I masked the central scalloped circle, and sponged, then stamped. The bg is sponged and inked with French Script, and I used my cuttlebug to cut out some Sizzix corners. The embellishments are pearls and a black ribbon and bow.

I hope you like this. IRL it's brighter....the day is still not conducive to taking photos!
