I'm soooo excited for this week's challenge!!! I love black!!! No, I'm not morbid!!! I just love the mystery it brings to a card!!!! So you can imagine how happy I was that this was black week!

 The choices are Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze OR Basic Black, Daffodil Deligt, Old Olive!!! I chose the latter because I immediately got a "picture" in my mind!!!

So welcome on over from Helen's blog!!! She likes black too!!! Isn't she cool?

So here's my "mysterious" creation!! lol


I couldn't help the glare!!! See, the giant Sunflower stamp is embossed with Black Embossing powder!! It makes it kinda shiny!!!!

 I am trying to use up my DSP Packs. The current ones are discontinued, and the new ones have fantastic new patterns!!!!!

This is  little different for me in that it's a square card! I love the way square cards look, but don't make them as often because they cost extra to mail!  Don't quite get that concept, but it is what it is! I just thought the square worked well for this design! 

There's some paper punching going on as well!!! Throw in a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set & Framelits & you're good to go!!

So I hope you like this card as much as I do! It's my favorite in awhile!!! So glad this stamp set & these colors are all sticking around in the new catalog! I don't know what I'd do without Daffodil Delight-seeing that yellow is my favorite color!!!

Be sure to tune in tomorrow for Day 1 of the 3-2-1 countdown to the new catalog release on Friday!!! Woohoo!!

So now go say hi to Laura for me! She is just so Lah-Dee-Dah! :) I'm gonna head on over & see what she did with this week's challenge!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!


  1. Really nice, Joni. Love the whole window idea. Beautiful.

  2. Very striking. Love that great big flower peeking in the window of the house -- must be a doll house. Hee hee. Love it.
