Thinking Of You

I have a few things to show you today and quite a few challenges that I'm entering. So there will be two posts today. :) I hope you will take the time to check them both out.
For the first challenges I am joining Simon Says Stamp & Show this week the challenge is "Inspiration Francaise" and of course they are so generous and are giving away a 50.00 gift card. YAY!
I am also entering this one into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog and their challenge is "Thinking of You" or "Sympathy" and of course, they are also giving away a 50.00 gift card to Simon Says Stamp. Double YAY!
So for these challenges I decided to make a greeting card. For this card I used a combo of different stamps from Hero Art and other misc companies as well, (can't recall where they all came from) 
I embossed the Paris stamp in clear embossing powder and then went over it with Fired Brick Distress Ink I then took a strip of white paper and wanted it to match the color in the Paris stamp so I went over it with Fired Brick distress stains. I used white lace for the bow. I also embossed the words "Thinking of  You" in Ranger's black embossing powder.
For the background words, I used the Fired Brick ink and a LaBlanche stamp. The whole card is on black cardstock for the background. I just really love the colors red, white and black together. I also really like to clean and simplicity look to this card.
