Good Luck!

My card for today features the Speedy the Cat Designer set, Blackberries, Sunflowers and Bees.  I can already tell that this is going to be a stamp set I reach for over and over again.  I stmaped the image in black and colored with copics.  I stamped the sentiment directly onto the designer paper.  What do you think?

Ingredients: Stamps: Blackberries, Sunflowers and Bees; Cardstock: Snow Storm Smooth, Speedy the Cat Black; DP: Basic Grey {Wisteria collection}; Ribbon: Black Sheer Organdy; Other: Copics

Have a wonderful weekend!  I'm so glad you stopped by to see me this week!  Come back any ole time you want to!  Enjoy the rest of the DT's fabulous work!
