Friday's challenge

Okay, I lied. I didn't get my scrap page up here. Sorry! I worked almost all day on my presentation and flyers for my events this weekend. I didn't play at all! I really want to get my pages done so I can display them Saturday so, don't give up hope!
I did take a few minutes to make a card for this week's blogger's challenge. Our challenge was to use Black, Red and Kiwi on a project. I got my new stamps yesterday so...an excuse to use them! I HAD to have these Fifth Avenue Floral stamps, they are gorgeous! I stamped the biggest bloom with real red classic ink onto whisper white and then used an aqua painter to add more real red ink and smear it around. You have to be careful doing this on whisper white cardstock. If you get too much water on it, it will bead up. I think I took it right to the bead point on this card. I added dazzling diamonds glitter all over to give it some class. The border along the bottom is the new Eyelet border punch from Stampin' Up! I love it! If you thought the scallop border was easy to use, this one is even easier!! I added a strip of red across the bottom above the eyelet border to give it the illusino of more layers.
I'm off to make my display boards and continue getting ready for tomorrow. If you are in the area, be sure to stop by the Cocoa Beach High school and check out the vendor fair going on. It is all to benefit the American Cancer Society. Hope to see you there!
