Simple Elegance

The first card I made is for today's limited supply challenge quick and elegant the challenge was to use the following materials:

one floral image (stamped once or generation stamping - repeated stamping without re-inking)
one swirly type stamp
sentiment (optional)

solid or patterned paper
limit your layers


Quick Tools (Optional)
paper piercer
Cuttlebug for dry embossing

So this is what I came up with not too sure if it would be considered elegant? However i love the splashes of red against the black and white, very striking.

The second card is the same basic styling with a little added bling!! What a difference a little bling can make, takes on a whole new look. I love the square bling not too sure if you can tell in the photo but they are mirrored, looks very cool in real life. I got them from Just Brads and Eyelets

Our trip to the dentist went well yesterday, Megan has to see a pediatric dentist, she needs to be sedated for any real work, and she will be soon.....LOL! They found some cavities between her teeth so she will have to go back and be sedated for them to be able to do the work. The good news is that while they are in her mouth they are going to put a sealant on her teeth, now that they are all adult teeth it should help protect them from further cavities.

The good thing about going to the dentist in Kelowna is there is a Michael's there!! So i got to go to Michael's I wandered over to the lighting section and found all the OTT Lites at 40% off woohoo anyone wanting one now is the time!

Michelle has asked what I am going to do with the box I created yesterday well............ I will show you a little later today!! I found a perfect filling for the inside!

Supplies: Fancy pants stamps, Black, Real red and WW card stock, DP, Black ink, Copics, Label, Circle, slot and Oval punches Ribbon, Bling, Brads, and Dimensionals

Your cards are gorgeous!!! I totally hear ya' with the dentist. My son had chipped all his top front teeth before he was 2 (he was walking before 9 months and knew no fear!) Turns out we had to take him to the dental clinic at Children's Hospital and have him put under a general anesthetic.
I got my Langley Boy stamp sets the other day. I feel some stampin' comin' on this weekend!!
C ya'!
