Pink and Black flowers

I have another sinus infection, so I haven't felt like doing much more than lying on my bed or reading books for the last week.  However, I did plan this card in my head during that time- so that should count for something!  I find sometimes I have to think about things for a while before I can make them.  In this case, I wanted to use the black/fake crystal trim on a card.  I decided on black and pink for the colors.

Then I remembered the beautiful Imaginisce double sided paper, and was sure I had a chunk of it left.  I also saw a card on a blog hop recently that had all the pieces matted with black.  All I had left to do was pick out a stamp that went well with the paper, so of course I dug out the Imaginisce  stamps and found one that looked good.

Of course, after all that thinking, you would hope the card went together quickly, but I had some trouble with the stamp.  First I had to condition it so it wasn't all splotchy.  Then none of the ink pads I had looked good with the papers, so I had to use a marker.  It is kinda hard to get a good image with a solid stamp and a marker, so that took a few tries. ( I am sure the sinus headache didn't help either!)

Anyways, I am happy with the way it turned out.

Have a happy day,
