When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Black, Red and White...

Black, Red and White are one of my favorite color combination.  Normally, I don't use it for everyday card unless it is for formal occasions card like wedding or wedding anniversary.  But since Valentines is almost in the air now and Cricut Cardz Challenge #57 challenges everyone to make a card using the mentioned color combo, this is one chance I won't up for.  So without further ado, here's my card entry for this week's challenge:

 My daughter loves it and I do too! 
As I mentioned earlier, black, red and white are very elegant colors so I need to come up with 
something simple, clean yet elegant.  

Happy Hearts Day in advance. How I wish I could wear this dress and have a date on V-Day with my Honey "SAD".  Soon, right!?  I know we'll be together again soon although I must admit that wearing this kind of dress is a far fetched dream LOL...

OH BTW, I was the grand prize winner for October at Cricut Cardz Challenge.  Yehey, I was told I will be getting something in the mail. Thank you CCC!  I'm excited, excited, excited... 

RECIPE:
PAPER: Wassau, Recollection, Embassy and Animal Print felt paper from Hobby Lobby
TOOLS: Cricut Expression, Gypsy, Cuttlebug machine, EF Embossing folders, PC paper trimmer, ATG, and Zig 2-way glue pen
CARTRIDGE: Nifty Fifties(mannequin/dress)
EMBELLISHMENT: MAMBI felt flourishes embellishment, Recollection flat-back pearls, felt ricrac ribbon, unbranded ribbon, 7 Gypsy sticker, American Girl glass gems (that I stole from my daughter's stash) and filigree flower charm
