Hello Everyone!

Today’s Card is for an Inspiration Challenge!

Hand Stamped Sentiments (HSS) #285

Here is the Challenge!

HSS 285

I really liked the Black with the pink!


Here is my Inspired Card!


With the Stampin’ Blends…I colored the leaves and flowers!

For the Greeting…I heat embossed in Copper!

Here is the inside of my Card!


I brought the pink inside to soften the Black…I also heat embossed

the sentiment in Copper! Clean and Simple!


Her is my Card with it’s matching envelope!


I glued a piece of the DSP over the envelope flap!
