Very Simple

Sometimes nothing seems to work & that's what happened as I tried to make a card for the Flourishes & Colour Me! challenges.  Not sure I'll have another chance, so this will have to do.  In the morning we go see the puppies one last time before we pick our boy & bring him home.  Gotta puppy-proof the house! I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder & heat embossed the flower from Flourishes Chrysanthamums.  The sentiment is from Life Lines & is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  
Hope you've had a great week.

The embossing is very pretty and makes a great background for the beautiful glitter flower. Beautiful CAS design. I'm looking forward to see photos of your new furry boy :) Have fun, Shirleyx

This is beautiful. I would not think to necessarily put turquoise with red but it works perfectly here on your card. hugs Mrs A.
