I hope you're all sitting down. I made a card using NO coloring! Eeek!! I know that doesn't happen very often but sometimes I like to spread my wings and try it. I actually have plans to make a few more without coloring today so be sure to be sitting and watch for those flying pigs!

This is another card for the challenges on a yahoo group I'm in. The challenge is to use the colors~ red or pink, white or cream and kraft with black allowed for the sentiment only.

I really like the look of cards made with the Bordered Sentiment technique so I did something similar. I made it easy on myself though and used an old set from TAC, Edge Designs for the border. I've had those stamps forever and have never inked them up--glad I inked them up as they are really neat--must use them more in the future!!

I also have been inspired by Sandi to stage my card photos a little bit more. I did it for a while and then I'll admit that I got lazy with it but they do look so much better so I'll give it another go. 

Stamps~ TAC-Edge Designs, Be Authentic
Ink~ SU Crumb Cake, SU Real Red
Cardstock~ SU Real Red, misc white
Designer Paper~ none
Other Goodies~ Martha Stewart butterfly punch, SU pearls
