PDD Friday, Stampin' for the Weekend and some other Challenges

Good morning!! There is nothing quite like a crafty package to wake up to on a Friday!! Wooot!! I got some fabby goodies from Marti this morning, including the Black Tuxedo Momento ink that is proving nigh on impossible to get here!! Have you seen these gorgeous little craft buckets by Ranger yet? Well believe me they are even nicer IRL!!

Anyhoooo.... this is my DT project for Pezzy's Playgroup and I'm also entering into Whiff of Joy's challenge which is a colour combo of Red, Cream and one other colour of your choice. I decided on black :) This card was also made for PaperPlay challenges and our theme this week is to use any other language apart from English on your project (this was a toughie!!, lol)

I coloured my image using distress inks and added stickles on Willows wings. I cut a circle using my circle nesties and embossed it with the 'Thank You' cuttlebug folder, then I sanded back the 'Gracias' to make show up more. The tulle is from Tabby Crafts and the button & flowers are from my stash.

Love your color combo on the first card, and how clever on the embossing.

Good job working the colors on the second card. It's an odd combo, but you made it pretty.
