Day 12 of The 31 Days of Angelosity

Good morning! Time is flying by, don't you think? We are already on Day 12 which leaves 20 days until "B" Day (instead of "D" Day...hehehe). I have a busy morning with Bible study today, so I will give you the rundown and then try and check back in later.
Thanks for voting in my poll. Looks like most of you use scraps on a fairly regular basis. I'll share with you how I save my scraps when I announce the winner of the MME papers tomorrow.
Here is today's sketch. Another one courtesy of my hubby. Please forgive the poor graphic. This one was a booger to sketch in my program. But, you get the point, right?
I've been dying to use the Imaginisce paper that I bought in Virginia. It's from their "Black Tie Optional" line and is double-sided. I used both sides of one paper (Fleur Noir) on my card. I've been wanting to make a black and white card for
Allison's challenge, but after I made this card, I realized her challenge was to make it a Christmas card. Ooops. I'll have to try again.
I rescued this big black leather flower (with pin backing) from the clearance bin at Hobby Lobby. It was actually 2 layers of the large size, so I got 2 of these cards out of it. There was a couple more layers, so I will use those later. No stamping here...
Card Recipe-
Stamps~ nope
Ink~ nope
Paper~ Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, DP from Imaginisce and SU
Accessories~ flowers (?), metal button- Keepsake Essentials, white gel pen, CM circle cutting system
And today I add 20 tags to the loot. Many of the tags were made using my Cuttlebug so to stay consistent, I used all in-colors for the tags.
Remember to check back to earlier posts for all of the rules if you're not sure what's going on! And comment here today for a chance to win the set of 31 cards!
Have a great day, my friends!
Blessings~
Angel

Great way to think outside the box and create a card without ink or stamps! Just goes to show what a crafty brain can come up with!

How gorgeous is that card. I know I am behind but I am having ONE HUGE MIGRAINE right and just getting online long enough to get the sketch and off and off again. I have had this for days now so I hope this will leave so I can make the sketches.

Rose Ann said...

Angel, I love the black and white card that you ended up submitting for Allison's challenge. Very elegant! I can totally relate about feeling frantic when running out of MK products! I'm always afraid they are going to stop producing the products I like best. Love the circles in your sketch. Thanks for sharing.

Linda SS said...

Stunning! That flower is so unique and pretty and is such a gorgeous accent on that layout.

Lindsay said...

Beautiful colors! I had fun with this one - here's my card:
