Flowers in pink and black

I think that title sounds like the name of a Georgia O'Keefe painting! LOL!

I'm loving this flower image from the Gina K Designs stamp set called Simple Pleasures . Besides the main decorative images, this set has GREAT sentiments!

I stamped the flowers on white cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.
The flowers and leaves were colored with Tombow markers to match the background paper. The designer paper is from The Paper Studio. I found it at Hobby Lobby last weekend. I just LOVE pink and black.

The ribbon is from May Arts. Actually, it matches this paper perfectly, but for some reason doesn't look that way in these photos. What's up with that?

The sentiment is also in the Gina K Simple Pleasures stamp set.

I'm working on something new for tomorrow night. I really need to get it finished, because the new Hero Arts stamps are due to arrive tomorrow evening. And I can't WAIT to get my hands on those!

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow, and hope you are too!
