One and one...

Well, our beloved Redbirds are one and one on the season!

Pittsburgh wasn't very nice to them the first game, but we came back last night with a winner. I couldn't find the game televised, so was forced to flip between American Idol and Biggest Loser. I could, however, imagine how cute Yadier Molina looked when he hit his home run. He is so expressive - it's great fun to watch his face when he does something good!!!

My card tonight is for a Cuttlebug Challenge. The colors to be used were Kraft Card Stock, Black, and Ivory. There was no 'sketch', but it was to be kept fairly clean and simple. I chose to use the "D'Vine Swirl" Cuttlebug Embossing Folder on the large black oval and on the corners. I have had this great DP on hand by Design Originals. It's from the Linen Collection by Lisa Vallrath, and it was just screaming out to be used on this! There are several coordinating pages, of which I used a couple. This is just another one of those 'must haves' that I picked up at O'Dear's before Christmas! I used the Marvy Green and Pink scalloped oval punches, a paper flower, Kraft C.S., Palette Noir Ink, and a white pen and Gelly Roll Starburst pen. The stamps are from the Abundant Blessings set from Verve Stamps. I hope you like it! I love a monochromatic card, but am not very good at making them!

Have a good Wednesday night!
