Kind Words...

Hi everyone! Today's card is a card I made with some of my PTI goodies that showed up this week. I am entering it in the Denami Designs challenge for this week. The challenge colors were white, black, and magenta. I really think the colors look great together and I am not a pink and black girl.

After seeing SO many lovely cards with Damask Designs, I just HAD to get it.  I already love it. I decided to alternate the black with Melon Mambo and then put it under a sheet of vellum (also from my PTI order). I really like the softness it gave the card. Then I used some of my new PTI ribbon. I usually get the grosgrain, but this time decided to go with the satin. I'm still a grosgrain girl, but this is really light and pretty. Perfect for *nice* cards. :) Oh, and I also used my new mat stack 4. It works perfectly with the sentiment from Kind Words. Goodness, this card is like when you wear all of your new school clothes on the first day of cannot wait to show them off! Ha!

Ok, well that's it. See you tomorrow!

Stamps: Kind Words (Verve)
Card Stock: Melon mambo, Black (stampin up); White and vellum (papertrey)

Keva, this is simply stunning! This set has a new purchase for me as well and having so much fun with it. I'll have to try your vellum technique. Just lends a nice soft look. And that Verse set is on my wishlist. I just love that sentiment!
