Red & Black Birthday Card

 Hello friends.  I have a new birthday card made for the Color Hues Challenge - Red & Black.

ETA:  My card was chosen as one of the Rockers at Watercooler Wednesday challenge.


I used some new goodies from Spellbinders - Be Bold Blooms for the red flowers and black centers. I added Wink of Stella to the black centers and the edges of the flower petals.  The open leaves are from SU Artistic Dies.  I cut them apart and placed them under the flowers where I thought they looked best.  The sentiment is stamped in Real Red using Waffle Flower Essential Sentiments stamp and die set.  I mounted it with foam tape to a white panel embossed with SU Pine Planks EF.  The black gingham paper is from a Recollections pad and the scallop border is cut with a SU die. 
I will link to the Watercooler Wednesday challenge - All About Occasions.
and to The Paper Players - Tic Tac Toe Challenge  (I use the diagonal row bottom left to upper right corner)
ETA:  My card was chosen as  A Cut Above at The Paper Players.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,


  1. Ooh, I love red, black and white on cards, JoAnn! The is so classy! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. So much to love about this card JoAnn - the embossing, gingham and beautiful diecut blooms in addition to the chic colour scheme. Thanks for playing along with my TicTacToe Challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

  3. This is beautiful! The red flowers justThanks for joining us at Color Hues! pop against the gingham and white. All the elements work so perfectly together!

  4. This is such a lovely design--everything works together beautifully! Those red florals with the open black leaves are so striking! Thanks for joining us at Color Hues!

  5. Awesome card JoAnn, love the red, black and white. There is so much interest and texture on your card, love it! Thankyou too for joining in at Watercooler Wednesday, Cathy x

  6. Your red blooms, outline leaves and gingham strip, scalloped edges and embossing make for a wonderful combination! Gorgeous card! vThank you for joining us at Color Hues!

  7. I love your mix of elements with the bold red flowers and the open leaves! I've had the Be Bold set on my wishlist for awhile but I waited too long because it's sold out everywhere. Probably because of your inspiration with this card and the pastel one.
