MC June Hello

I've been itching to do some calligraphic type artwork and finally managed to do some.

The challenge on Created By Hand is "Red the New Black". I Googled the words and came up with lyrics for a friend's funeral. Not sure if that was the idea for this theme or not. Or it also popped up political notes. Mmm I'm not into politics.
The Created By Hand challenge is also on their new group on Quietfire Creations (

So I decided to just use the colors.

This card also fits the challenges for:

Corrosive Challenges #69 Black White + 1 other color
All Sorts Challenge #58 embossing
Tuesday Throwdown #5 Use Dry Embossing

The blackletter border is a rubber stamp by Quietfire Design which I love.
