This week, we also have a wonderful sponsor! It's an Etsy shop called Pretty Tape! One lucky winner will get a $35 gift certificate to the shop! I wish I could win!!

This is my card for this week. My inspiration piece can be found HERE. I decided to change it up a bit using black instead of brown and adding in some bright pink. The DP is from DCWV, the stamp set is Ippity Regal Greetings, the ribbon is Target $ Spot and I accented with some Fruit Punch Stickles.

Please check out the DT for inspiration!
