The Classy Card Ladies Return

Today is the 15th and that means it is another posting day for our group with the new name--Crafty Card Ladies!   The new team names are the Pearls and the Diamonds--very Classy names for us!   For our February Challenge, Suzy and Debby, the sisters from Texas, are the hostesses. Debby is a Pearl and Suzy is a Diamond--same as me!   And we are all team Classy Card Ladies!  

The theme for February picked by Suzy and Debby is cactus. They have them growing all around outside--I have one small one in my house!    Suzy sent us a fun filled kit with with a cute cactus image, a coordinating sentiment, some sweet patterned paper, fun ribbons and pretty embellishments. 

The cute cactus image Suzy sent is from Deadbeat Designs and the sentiment is Texana designs. I colored the image with my Copic Sketch Markers.  I die cut the image with a MFT Tag Corner Rectangle die.  I also die cut the sentiment with my Stampin' Up Tasteful Label die. I then cut three strips from the patterned paper Suzy included for the background.  I layered two of the pretty ribbons.  This was fun card kit to play with--thanks Suzy!

Here is the inside of my card, with a strip of the fun cactus paper:

I hope all of the Classy Card Ladies enjoy my card this month. Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Diamonds as well the Pearls have created this month.  There are two members who do not have blogs: Suzy who is on the Diamond team and Debby who is a Pearl.

Barb, such a fun card - I love the three panels of paper on the front. That's a creative way to use the papers in the kit! And the gorgeous DP on the inside, too. Awesome duel!

Great card Barb. I love the 3 layers for the background. Also using 2 ribbions together is an awesome creative touch. Great job with the kit.
