Make my Monday

Make My Monday has this beautiful inspiration photo, to entice us to play in their challenge. You guessed it - I could not resist. Anything on black always just pops - I love that.

I got this beautiful Memory Box die from my blogging friend Sylvie in Gibraltar as part of a give-away I was lucky to win. So that's my first time using it. I colored it with Copics. The sentiment I white embossed - it is from Inkadinkadoo. The butterflies is a Martha Stewart punch.

The card is very different, from what I usually make - I hope you like it!
I linked this card also up with the Simon Says Anything goes challenge.


And in case you don't - perhaps you'll like my cave pictures from my Texas trip. The cave is called "Cave Without A Name. In a naming contest (1940) a young boy suggested that the cave "was too beautiful to have a name". He won the contest and received a 250 dollar cash prize, which was a huge amount of money back then.

The cave was well worth a visit - stunningly beautiful formations.

Auch bei dieser Karte zeigts du wieder viel Geschmack! Ich finde nämlich, dass so eine dunkle Karte ger nicht leicht zu machen ist. Mit diesen zarten, filigranen Stanzteilen hast du ihr ein sehr legeres Aussehen verliehen! Alle Achtung!!
Ich persönlich, hätte mich da sehr schwer getan!

So, jetzt wünsche ich dir und deiner Familie noch ein schönes Osterfest und hoffe dass dein Päckchen bald ankommt! Es ist schon seit 2 Wochen auf der Reise, aber soviel ich gehört habe, kann das bis zu 4-5 Wochen dauern... und ich dachte mir, du bekommst es noch vor Ostern :-(

Ganz liebe Grüße
