La Carte Postal Rose {The Pink Post Card}


Good evening everyone! Is anyone still awake? This is a late post for me (it's past my bed time), but I really wanted to jump on in here tonight to share a card I created for the latest CR84FN Color Challenge.

The colors this week are light pink, cream, and black. Here's my card...

It kind of reminds me of a French boutique shop. The kind where they wait on you while you sip champagne. I certainly wouldn't mind this at all!

And don't you just love my newest stamp? It's the Tim Holtz Post Card stamp collection that I purchased this weekend at the most amazing scrapbook store I have EVER been in! Thanks to my friend (you know who you are) for driving me all the way to this HUGE store that I can only say is like Disneyland for papercrafters! It was so overwhelming, I needed a nap to recover after the shopping was done! 

See the laced up stitching on the bottom? I have been wanting to try this for so long! It's just like lacing up your shoestrings only much, much prettier. Although it kind of reminds me of a Victorian corset - don't you think?

Well that's my take on the color challenge! If you want to join in, you can link up your creations here

Thanks for stopping by and as always for your lovely comments!
