Have a Fantastic Day!

Hello!
Hope you all had a great weekend. 
Ours was simply not long enough...
 I think that our weekend should be 5 days, and our work week 7.  
When they put me in charge, I'll be sure to fix that!

I needed a quick card for my chemo lady, and saw the challenge at Simon Says Stamp was to use black, white, and a splash of another color.  So...here is my black and white card!

Hero Arts: CG140 Poppy Background, Hero Arts CL578 Good Friends, Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink, Copic BG10, Hammermill 100# CS, Perfect Layers Rulers
Edited:  I'm so sorry that I didn't post directions for this card.  This was a 5.5 x 5.5 square card base of Hammermill 100# cardstock.  The image was stamped on a scrap of the Hammermill, and cut out, exactly on the black border.  I then matted on the teal, then adhered the panel to the card front.  The flowers were colored with Copic Marker BG10, and the image was stamped below.  Please feel free to email me if you need more info!

Used Perfect Layers Rulers for my borders (see sidebar for details).
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great week!

Hugs,
Patti J.

I do not have many Hero Arts stamps in my collection, but when I see some of these backgrounds and such, I start to question myself. This is fantastic!
