Every Breath is a Gift

Well we have made it to Wednesday! I have a kiddo home sick today with a nasty cough!
This week is a really busy week for me creatively! I am getting back on my creative roll!

I knew as soon as I saw this paper what I wanted to do! However, I had to order the stamp set first!
This week Can You Case It has a fabulous Black and White Challenge so.... Challenge accepted!

My card started with a base of Basic Black with a lovely layer of  DSP that has the dandelions all over it! It is from this years Sale-A-Bration with Stampin' Up!. So I managed to get it for free! The stamp set is from one of my favorite designers Phyllis Harris! She has a fabulous line of stamps through Unity Stamp Company. This set is called Every Breath!  I stamped this image using the Basic Black Archival Ink. I used Gina Steimels stitched rectangles to die cut the image. The Basic Black matte is just about an 1/8" wider/longer than the stitched rectangle.  I wasn't sure what to do with sentiment or where to put it! So simply stamped it on to the Whisper White and used my 1 3/8" Circle punch. I rubbed the edges with some black ink, made a few metallic thread loops and adhered this to the top left corner using Stampin' Dimensionals! I knew the card needed something, so I used some Sparkly Clear and Charcoal sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!

Thank you So much stopping by today! Can't wait to see you tomorrow!
