More Handmade Cards for the Auction

Pink and Black card

Here I go again with pink on a project. Granted, there isn't a lot of pink so it will be okay. :)

I am in need of several cards for two different needs. 
An auction and a fundraiser. 
So I am making two sets of cards. About 9 cards in each set

This is the first card I will blog about.
I made this one a couple of months ago just to have in my card stash.

Here is a card using the same supplies but different layout....

I layered the black and white strip of cardstock onto two different shades of pink.
And moved it to the edge of the white cardstock base.

Notice that there aren't as many flowers? I thought the design needed to be simplified 
so i didn't use as many on the rest of the cards.

And the third card using same supplies...

I moved the strip over a little away from the edge and moved the sentiment away from the strip

I even made a fourth card using these supplies but I can't show it 
because I am actually giving it to someone.

I love how versatile a design/layout can be. 
You can use all the same supplies and come out with different cards.
How cool is that??!!
