Sharing an oldie this Friday. Crafty style!

Morning all and it looks like it is going to be another gorgeous day in the North of Scotland, that's three days on the trot, it must be summer!

Another oldie to share with you today and this one is from a couple of years ago.

Black and pink is not a usual combo for me as I'm not really a pink kind of girl but occasionally I like to live dangerously!

For this card I have used Spellbinder nestabilities rectangle.
Behind it I have mounted a MM Make a wish clear stamp from PI on to acetate. 
American craft black and pink and I have edged using Martha Stewart edger two dot punch and black soot Ranger distress ink.
I have also added pink card on the back of the inside card to get the colour following through.
The sentiment is from PI clear stamps Paula Pascual Double sayings with black StazOn ink and cut out with Spellbinders nestabilities label 14. 
The final touches are with satin ribbon from my stash and bling from Zva Creative.

I love this set of stamps from PI and have used them loads, perfect for any occasion.  You've got to love stamps you can use for any occasion as you get so much more wear out of them, good VFM.

If you'd like to play along with me on your blog sharing an oldie don't forget to link back here with a message so that I can visit you too and share the crafty love!  
I'd love to see your work. 

All that is left for me today is to wish you all the very best for the weekend, another day chilling in the sunshine here with maybe a little crafting and ironing later.  
I've recently re found my kindle and am enjoying getting my nose into a book again.  The only problem I have is if it is a good book I have great difficulty putting it down!

Have a super Friday.  x

This is such a beautiful card. I personally love the black and pink combo. It has a very stunning look!

I so agree about stamps like this. That stamp is really versatile and can be used for so many different types of occasions.
