Look what March winds blew in ~ a great challenge ~

   Hello  and   I was so happy to see what our  group  had   this month   to work  with...   I  love  black and  white cards,  classic, elegant, timeless ;  then add a touch of red  and  WOW ,  you get  one of my all time  favorite  color combos... 
      In my first card I did not want to disturb  the look of   the "Gracious Lady " so I  just  let her  be... I  added the touch of red as  suggested and  some  satin ribbon and  black bling to dress it  up ... The black card stock has a slight  sparkle to it, and I  mounted it on a while card base . 
 I love  how she  turned out  

The second card  I did  was  gate fold card  and I punched out  the  stamped  F  - friends  and mounted it on the pre cut red square and mounted  that on some shimmery  black and white
DP  to be the center focal point.. The card base is textured too . I used some red  ribbon to make a band  to hold the card closed 
                                                  This is a 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 square card      

          And the third card  is one I had a little fun with   ~  I re-stamped  some of the sentiments  on ivory  card stock  since  this tag  I  had was more ivory.   I used  the  red  vine  embossed card stock,  it too had some  shimmer  to it  what a nice touch !   I added  a flower and a pearl center  and  fell in love with it ...  Again the black base was  textured  .
Sorry for the  blurry  print,  not sure why   it looks that way...  I still have a few pieces  to play with, but I was excited with what I  made... 

Thanks  for stopping by,  I swept off the FRONT PORCH in anticipation  you all might  be coming.The weather  has been  pretty  nice  other than a day or so here and there  .

I hope you all are doing well  
and are smiling  

Til  next  time  bye  bye  
Happy crafting
