Speedy's Challenge #21, Operation Write Home!

This is my card for this weeks Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge #21! This we we are challenging you to make a Birthday card for 'Operation Write Home'.

I used the Thankful Mums & Pumpkins set for the image, and the sentiment is from Daffodil & Anise!

The image was embossed with black embossing powder and then I sponged on regal rose ink. The vase was coloured with copics, which I always forget, makes the embossing bleed! I cut the image out and popped it up.

The card base is black, with a layer of white and then a pink cardstock from Mark's Finest Papers that looks a lot like regal rose, very pretty, sorry I'm not sure what it's called! The designer paper is Basic Grey Porcelain.

I finished it off with some mini black brads.

So why not come over and join in the fun. There are awesome prizes each week! You can find all the details here at Mark's Finest Papers Blog! Make sure to upload your creation at the bottom of the post by 3pm Friday Sept. 24.

Have a Great Weekend!
