Hey hey!! Two posts in one day!

I started out with such high hopes for this card! Now don't get me wrong...I like it! I just don't love it! I have seen so many pretty black and pink cards lately and so I thought I would try my hand at that color combo! Here is an example of a gorgeous pink and black card made by Sherry Cheever. So I figured how could I go wrong?! I used my Fiskars corner punch embosser on the edges of the pink and black and it gave it the optical illusion of being sort of oval! It isn't! LOL I used my awesome new Scalloped edge punch along the bottom and added little accents all over the place with my white gel pen. I used stamps from SU! Dreams Du Jour and cut out, layered and glitter glued those lovely butterflies in place! I used my new Very Vanilla ribbon to tie that ginormous bow and I stamped pink piroutte butterflies with pink piroutte ink on my base color guess it pink piroutte! I really love that color! It is one of Stampin Ups! new In Colors! Anyhow this is my attempt at pink and black! I plan to send it to my Grandma because she would love it if I made it with my left hand and my eyes closed! LOL Have a wonderful day!

I for one think this is a very pretty card and can't for the life of me see where you think you went wrong. It's FABULOUS and I'm sure your grandmother is going to love it!
