One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

The Challenge over at the PTI site is BLACK Backgrounds!  Here is my second card for this challenge:

I kept the black pretty simple this time.  I used the outline of the gracious vases and embossed with white, then I added a flourish using clear embossing powder.  The flowers are from The Sweet Life and the sentiment is from Beautiful Blessings.  Thanks for taking a look!

  9. Not sure if this is true... but when I saw your card I thought immediately "she was inspired by the cool lemoncino art in Nichole's inspiration". Love that yellow and black combo.
