Another Zero Birthday......

Hi all.

I hope you are all enjoying the long Easter break. I have so much to show you, so I hope to schedule some fairly regular posts over the next week or so.

Today's card date's back a month or so....yes I am that far behind!!! One of the secretaries at work was about to celebrate a zero birthday. This lady is very elegant and understated. I was asked to make her card that was black and white and nowhere was it to mention her age!!!! Easy right????

I was inspired by this card on SCS.....it fitted the black and white part anyhow. This is the card I made for the birthday girl.....


and I also made one slightly different for the stash......


I think the red just stepped up the sass factor a little. I embossed the stripe...although due to 2 sproggets tearing around...I ended up debossing as opposed to embossing....but it worked out OK.


The swirl is so very intricate and with both rhinestones and pearls it looked so pretty.

The birthday gal loved her card....so I was happy too.

Thanks for popping by. As promised will have more for you all soon.

CS: (SU) Basic Black, Whisper White as well as Paper Mill Black and White Paisley Pearl paper and Stardream Deep red paper

Great card Lynda. I love the colours and EOS. It makes such a classy card. Love the red 'debossed' strip. It looks great. Must remember that one.
