An Inspiration

Happy Wednesday!
Hope that your week has gone very well so far.

I'm here today with a post for Repeat Impressions.  Today, Cheri Weston is our challenge hostess for the DCC (Designer's Choice) Challenge.  Her challenge to all of us, is to use black, white, and grey on a project.  Here's what I did:



I used the Small Dragonfly #102, the Inspiration sentiment #8409-E and the Spring Blossoms #1320-M, along with some colored cardstock, ribbon, and some white embossing powder.  Voila - very quick, and very elegant!

Hope you'll join us for the DCC challenge at The House That Stamps Built!
You could be the winner!!!

I am also entering this in the Craft Hoarder's Anonymous Challenge - 'Flowers'!

Thanks for dropping by,
Patti J.

Other supplies used:
Stampin'Up! Decorative Label Punch, Marvy Heat Gun, Stampendous White Embossing Powder, Ribbon from my stash, cardstock.
