DD#87- Black and Melon Mambo with option of Umbrellas

Yay for Saturday finally being here. I've got a few things that need to be done around the house but for the most part I plan on being in my craft room. I have a lot of new goodies that I want to use and a lot that need to be put away. I was in my room for a little bit last night and I came to the conclusion that I am obsessed with organizing my supplies ALL THE TIME!! It seems like I do it at least once a week. I can't wait to finally find all right places with everything so I can just be productive!

Speaking of being productive... It's time for another challenge over at Dynamic Duos. It is Black Tie week and I just love these colors! I could not believe that I did not have a die cut or stamp of an umbrella so I turned my trusty Silhouette. It never lets me down and always has what I need.

The colors are Black & Melon Mambo with the option of Umbrellas and here is my card for you.

I've got to stop finishing cards after the sun has left us for the day. I just can't figure out the lighting when it is dark. It's frustrating to have the tools but not know how to use them properly.

Recipe used:
 Cardstock- SU Basic Black, Melon Mambo and Whisper White
 Sentiment- See Ya Later stamp set coming soon in our Sale-A-Bration catalog
 Umbrella & Boots- Silhouette cut file
 White gel pen
 Wink of Stella clear glitter pen

I hope you will join us this week! If you need inspiration there is plenty from my Design Team friends. Head on over to their blogs and give them some love!

  1. Any project is welcome...paper crafts, scrapbooking, digital, or crafts...
