Black Beauty

If you know me, you know I have a major soft spot
for the color black. I love using it as an accent in our home
and I love to wear it. I love refinishing furniture with it then giving it an aged look.

In small doses, black can be a show stopper and a focal point. The eye is
always drawn to a luxurious dark color and if the lines are right, it can seduce you.

I love that it's classy color but it can also be rebellious. 
Maybe that's why I like it so much.

Black. Black. Black.

 So I finally, finally designed business/calling cards.
You're probably thinking, "What does this have to do with black?!"

There's been a loooong back and forth debate on whether or not
I needed to change my {cell} number to a local area code.
This prompted the delay because opinions are like, well... you know,
so I had a meeting with myself and decided to keep it.
Besides, it's only a number.

My business cards are just like this except with my name and phone number on them.

What do you think?


  1. Nice, Amber! I love wearing black, but the closest I come to decorating with it is 2 charcoal-colored sofas. ;)

    1. :) Black clothing just goes with everything! Charcoal couches.... might have to consider that color. It's almost time to graduate to grown up couches for us. The boys will be turning the big 7 next month and although they are still rough on things, I'm ready for a sofa upgrade!

  2. Very pretty and very you. I love it and the sweet cow with flowers in her hair

    1. :) Thank you Gina! I love my cow. SOMEday I shall have one of my own. My son named this cow Rosie but only when she has a flower in her hair.

  3. Your card is beautiful! I wouldn't worry one bit about your cell number. Lots of people have a phone with an area code that doesn't match the area.

    1. I agree, Stacey. It was the "one last bit of California" that was the issue. :) No biggie and the decision has been made. I love how the roses and white pop off the black. Can't wait to have them in hand.

  4. 😍l LOVE IT ❤️❤️

  5. Love 'em. I wear black a lot and feel so comfortable in it and enjoy a dash in my decor as well. These business cards are very eye catching.

    1. It's nice to be in good company, Teddee! I am excited about my business cards. They definitely draw the eye, don't they?

  6. I love wearing black,
    I have more black outfits than any other color
    because it is so versatile that you can pair it with any
    other color and it would look good
    plus they say it makes me look slimmer/sexier ♥

    Love your business card
    it is simple with a touch of elegance.


    1. Guess what color I am wearing today? :) Thanks for stopping by, Ann! Now I'm off to visit you! Have a great day!
