Sent with Love

Boy am I sneaking into challenges at the last minute these days, including this card for Lil Inker Designs Monthly Meetup. Can't miss the chance to win their gift certificate!  This idea came to me when I saw the new ColourQ challenge, but a sick day & work kept me from getting it done until last night. Never a doubt of what I'd choose for my "spot" with pink being my favorite color & you can't beat combining it with black & gray. I used Lil Inker Stitched Rectangles & Modern Mehndi stamps & dies. The splatters are Brilliance Pearlescent Coral (has always looked totally pink to me!) & Graphite Black. The sentiment is heat embossed to match the images & works perfectly to go with a RAK package to a blogging friend.  With my focal point in the middle, I'm also playing at SSS Monday. Have a great weekend.  I'll be catching up on my blog reading & enjoying our incredibly beautiful weather.

This is a really wonderful card. I like that the focal point is just... graphic spots, you know not a thing. Am I making any sense? I hope so. Anyway, FAB card. And the colors--swoon.

This matches your blog! :-) I love it. I am sorry I have been MIA...Life as a single parent and baseball 5 days a week has left me little time right now. I am not even making it in my craft room these days.
