Tomato Soup and Onyx

Dear Ones~
What an awful, rainy, icy, dreary day here. The only good thing about it is that it's washing away the remainder of the snow in our yard.
Today's card was made for The StampTV Release Party Challenge, to stamp our own background, and for the Just Us Girls Challenge. My dear friend Nancy is hosting this week, and she has asked us to make a card using black and white, and one other color. In this case I chose to use GKD Tomato Soup, LOVE that color, it looks exactly like tomato soup!! And you KNOW I'm all about food - ha ha!!!

Here's my card:
I used 2 leaf images from GKD Flowers Bloom Stamp Set and stamped them in GKD Black Onyx Ink, and then used the starburst stamp from the GKD Hello Sunshine Stamp Set and stamped that in GKD Tomato Soup ink. The greeting is from that same set. And I love the linen look of the Frame and Filler stamp behind the die cut aster. I sponged the aster with Tomato Soup Ink and then added some clear Stickles. You know me, I gotta sparkle up everything!!!!

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Black Onyx, White, and Tomato Soup Card Stock
GKD Hello Sunshine Stamp Set
GKD Flowers Bloom Stamp Set
GKD Frame and Filler Stamp Set
Spellbinders Asters and Poppies Die Set
