Black,White and Pink

Our friends Kathryn and Dave celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary this past weekend with a lovely garden party.

I happened to know that one of their favourite colour combinations is black and white with sometimes a bit of pink(Kathryn's favourite) thrown in.

Some time ago I found a bottle bag in black and white with pink trim that had their monogram of M on it.

Then I happened to buy the Papertrey Damask Designs stamp set.

And yes, I had an "aha" moment. In a complete 'lift' of a card I saw in the PTI gallery, I created this card:

I created the designed paper by stamping in black on the white then trimmed it with pink ribbon.

I then used my new technique of stamping the sentiment over an already stamped damask image.

And look how perfectly the card matched the bottle bag!

I almost wanted to keep it all but my name does not begin with M.
