Fastest mouse in the whole of Meh-hico!

I needed to make this one sooooo quickly today as this is my last working week before my maternity leave starts and I have two orders to get completed (eeek!). Creative Card Crew's latest challenge is 'Black and one other colour'. Well it had to be red or pink for me!

Pink Petticoat image and patterned paper, nestabilities, ribbon
The background paper is from Pink Petticoat's Lola's Boudoir collection, it's black printed onto red card. I love this one and use it quite a lot. The flower image and sentiment are also from Pink Petticoat, I added a little black shading to give the flowers a little definition.
Finished off with Fiskars punch and a little ribbon.
I just heard one of my blogging friends Chrissie is babysitting her Granddaughter today and is currently listening to 'Twinkle twinkle' over the monitor. I've got snoring from Zac in the background! Not quite as relaxing but cute none the less.


  1. Hiya Victoria,

    this is beautiful, I love the striking red, the backing you printed looks so effective.

    Good Luck with your orders. Thanks for joining us this week.

  2. Wow this is gorgeous

  3. Stunning card Victoria, the colours are so striking! If I were you I would have had some Zzzz's too whilst Zac was snoring his head off...hope you are not overdoing it too much at the moment :) Donna x

  4. Managed to stay awake through the strains of Twinkle, twinkle, however it was a struggle. No cards made for me today, but I do have time to admire yours!
    This is great, I should take your tip and print backgrounds onto different coloured paper or card. The effects you get are really striking.
    Well done you! Take care.

  5. Gorgeous card:O) I love it!
    Hugs, Nancy.
