Bloggers Challenge # 83, Red, Kiwi, Black White

It has been a WHOLE week since I've stamped. That NEVER happens to me! I've been fighting some fires on the home front and things have finally slowed down, thank goodness.

It was such a joy to open the box with my new texture plates for the sizzix and my new Sympathy stamp set, Thoughts and Prayers.
This color challenge comes at a great time for me. A close friend just lost her dad and I want to send a card to her mom just because. I don't think I would have used black with this stamp set, and I'm so happy I did.
The new texture Z from sizzix is featuring the stampin up artwork for a dry embossed image that takes seconds. I cant wait to show my new toys on Sunday at the open house.
If you have time, please also check out the amazing work of my stampin sisters, the bloggers challenge group to see what they came up with for this challenge.
Have a good night!
Selene~

This is a beautiful card Selene, and I'm sure that your friend's mother will be touched by your thoughtfulness.

Beautifully done Selene! The textured background looks amazing! I guess I'm lucky I haven't ordered this set yet (it's on my wish list). After reading the comments from the others, it doesn't look like I'd get one...lol! :D
