Pink & Black....



...again. I am really thinking pink and black a lot lately. And it might be from this absolutely gorgeous paper I found by Creative Imaginations called Narratives. I just LOVE it!


I find some 12x12 paper hard to use in cardmaking, but this paper works perfectly. I love the scalloped edges and the flourish edges, too. It's pricey though at $2 a sheet.










See what I mean? I just love the flowered punched edge of this paper as well as the background script. I stamped the flower (smARTworks) with some Brilliance Radiance inks and then placed this transparent tag by Prickly Pear over it.

The sentiment is by Impression Obsession. I placed that into a black chipboard label holder.
The decorative corners are by PSX.

I'm so jealous....I LOVE that paper! We don't have any paper sources here except Michael's and Hobby Lobby. And I don't think I'll find anything like that there! LOL! You did a beautiful job with it!

Ooh, I can see why you're loving the paper! Think I may need to try creating some of my own with background stamps and border punches.

The card is stunning as well!
