Don't know why, but think that the black-white card is so classy! Such a great idea just to use the vellum like this! Thank you for taking some TIME OUT and join us!

Stunning and gorgeous! I adore how striking both these cards are. You picked some luscious colors. That black and white one, though, oh my!!!

Love those roses, Carol, especially the black and white ones. The vellum over the top preserves them.

Gorgeous, Carol ... such a fabulous contrast between the soft pretty in pink and the dramatic monochrome and vellum with the teeniest pop of red ... what a stunner! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

Wowsers, Carol. I absolutely adore both of these cards. Doesn't help that those roses are on my wish list! Stunning in both colors--love the butterfly accenting the first card and the vellum with just the tiniest touch of color in the second. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out this week.

I think you second card won - congrats and no surprise - that is quite the background you created! The vellum is perfect to soften it up and that little red dot adds just the much needed color! Your first card is very pretty, too!
