for you...

Hello friends!!  Have a card that I made for two challenges:  Less is More and Dynamic Duos.  The Less is More challenge this week is to CASE either Jen's card or Chrissie's card.  And the Dynamic Duo color combo is grey and black.  For my card I decided to CASE Jen's card.  


I used two Stampin Up! sets:  Layered Labels and Hearts a Flutter.  The label was stamped using Close to My Heart's Grey Wool ink and then trimmed out.  The banner was stamped using Tuxedo Black and then die cut using the matching banner die.  I tried to do some piercing like Jen did on her fabulous card, but I SUCK at piercing and so decided to emboss my white cardstock piece using the SU! Tulip Border embossing folder. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & true black, SU! Basic Grey; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Dies:  Stampin Up!; Embossing Folder:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Memento and Close to My Heart

This is lovely, Rosemary. I love the label you used and that adorable striped banner below it. I'm not great at paper piercing, either. The tulip border looks perfect with this! Fantastic card for these colors. Thank you for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week. ;-)
