Operation Write Home and a birthday wish

This is my first time using embossing powders and I am in love. 

I was definitely inspired by the cards from the DT shown on the Embellish Magazine Website

Paper: DCWV™ (black), Bazzill™ (white), Echo Park: A Walk in the Park™
Stamps: Hero Arts CL 139™, Inkadinkado™ (what a cute name!) 97626

Ink: VersaMark: Watermark Ink Pad

I love the yellow with the black and white! I really like the pearls on the butterfly too! Great ideas. Your card would fit right in with those cards in the magazine. Great job!

Definitely love the color combo and the layout. I have the same colors on my tablr to make a mini album (black cover, yellow butterfly, cream pages)

I would love to buy that halloween card from you for my Mom for halloween. Let me know if I can send you a check by mail or how we will handle this. I know she will LOVE it! Thanks again for making me smile everyday!
