Stella Ruby to the rescue

I was ready to give up on this but I am so glad that I was persistent and kept at it! In my Basic Grey stash I found this lovely sheet of paper from the Stella Ruby collection. And it was orange and black. I don't think that it looks like a Halloween card at all. If fact I'm very happy with the outcome.
I have two more cards to make this week. 2 masculine cards for birthdays. Check back in a day or two for my progress on these! I've got a busy week. Thursday is the Graduation ceremony, and Saturday is the party for the family, small, we'll only be 50! LOL!
Enjoy!

Yay...you did it and did it fantastically (is that a word?!)

Awesome card! Love all the sewing, guess I should look for one of those Janome's! Nope, doesn't look Halloweenish at all. Very stylish and modern chic. You've got such a great eye for color/layering.. it's wonderful!

I have a few masculine cards to do too and they always seem so hard... most of them don't appreciate alot of flowers! LOL

Good luck with all your activites this week. Make sure you take a little time to breathe in between all the chaotic fun !

Congrats again to Chelsea!

I Think you did fantastic on this black and orange card! Don't look like halloween at all. How did you do the background? How did your daughter like it?

We gave the card to Chelsea last night after Graduation with her gift of a brand new Mac Book laptop. She was thrilled! She loved the card and really appreciated me using her school colors. She was showing the card to her friends last night before they all went out.
Kara, the background is Basic Grey DP. and the main image panel was sponged. Thanks for asking!
