Happy Tuesday all!! I hope you all have had a good beginning to your week.  This week I began doing some more painting in my new home.  As I complete each room, it feels and looks so clean.

Today I would like to share a card I made yesterday for Splitcoaststampers CAS "Chic" Word Challenge.

When I think of Chic, I think stylish and elegant with black and white....

 so I made a black bow with some ribbon and white adding a few punched flowers (the flowers themselves were left from another card that I never ended up using).

The verse is from Our Daily Bread Designs- Fortress stamp set .

The embossing folder is Provocraft scrollwork.

The sentiment is framed with Spellbinders Ovals and Twisted Metal Tags and Accents.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you are somehow inspired by my creation!!  

challenges I am entering my creation in:
Craft Room Challenge -   Emboss It
Creative Card Crew - #10 Sentiment as Focal Point
Paper and Such Design -  April Showers Bring May Flowers 
Top Tip Tuesday - #76 Clean & Simple
Craft Your Passion - Lots of Texture   
Friends of Speedy TV -  Use 3 of Something. (three flowers)
 Hooked on Crafts - Flowers
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Paper Pretties -  Use Ribbon.

Have a blessed day!!!

hugs and blessings,
