Step It Up with Moroccan Nights Blog Hop

That title makes it sound like I have been to some exotic location.  Oh how I wish!!!!
This is the name of one of the new stamps sets in the Stampin UP 2016-2017 catalog.
I love looking through the new catalog and making wish lists.  There are so many fun things in this catalog.

I have a good friend that is retiring for, in fact, the second time.  I wanted to let her know how much I loved her with a hand made card congratulating her.  I went with a black and white classic look.  The background strip is actually stamped multiple times to create the columns.

Here is the stepped up version with ribbon more black layering and a pearl accent in the middle of the circle design

Head on over to Jeanna K for some more ideas and peaks at the new catalog.

Two great cards! And, something you don't see everyday - a retirement card! Wonderful choice.

Ooooo, I really love that script sentiment with this stamp set! I love the contrast with the black and white. Thanks for sharing :-)
