Beautiful Day

We're about midway through The Heart Desires Challenge #4 so come join in!  You can choose to use the colors, (sun)flowers, and/or the sketch so lots to choose from.

I chose flowers for both of my cards but went in totally different directions with them.  I am loving Concord & 9th, aren't you?  Classy yet fresh, and very versatile.  I colored the first card with Copics and went really bold with this wedding card with the black.  Sigh.  So much POP!

I'm entering this in Curtain Call Fall FloralsAddicted to Stamps and More #212 Make Your Mark, Simon Says Wednesday Gift It

For the second card, I used the flowers again and went monochromatic with gold.  Mmm, gold.  I stamped and embossed the wildflowers, then stamped and embossed the sentiment over the top of it.  Love how tactile it is.  A strip of washi on the cardbase and voila!

I'm entering this card in Allsorts #381 Black and White Plus One   

The Details:  Concord and 9th Beautiful Words, Wildflower, Happy DayVersaFine Onyx Black, Doodlebug black/white striped washi, Stampendous black detail fine embossing powder, Versamark, Ranger gold embossing powder


  1. Love your choice of gold for the other colour and those flowers are lovely, great touch with the black.
    Thank you for joining our Black, white and one other colour challenge this week at Allsorts.


  2. WOW Toni - that first card is simply stunning! I LOVE that image....I love that greeting on the second. Both are great. :) :)

  3. I love your card for THDC, way to use that image for that photo/color inspiration. The off-the-edge design is perfect.
