I don't know what it is about this card, but it is one of my favorites right now.
I saw this sketch on one of the stamping challenges from my sidebar....(I'm too lazy to go check which one right now...sorry) Then, while I was blog hopping, I saw a card from DeAnn Rauzi that was very similar to this one. I just changed a few things.
I only had time to make one of these cards, but you can best believe that I will be going back and making a LOT more for my stash.
I used that great new Everyday Enchantment DSP from the sale a bration catalog, and can I just say, that I am very sad that it is only available for a short time. Because, I LOVE this paper.
I embossed the Poppy Parade background with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder and then took some Soft Suede ink and a sponge, and sponged over the raised image to help make it pop a little bit. I also sponged all the edges of each piece. The border, in Pool Party, underneath the sentiment is a very sadly neglected stamp that had never even touched an ink pad yet, Borderlines. Then from the Blessings From Heaven stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede.
So, I hope you like this card as much as I do. Thanks DeAnn for the wonderful inspiration. There are so many stampers out there in blogosphere that inspire me. I wish I had more time to just blog hop and get even more inspiration. Thank you to all the wonderfully inspirational bloggers out there that share their creations so I can copy them....(insert big grin here).
Thanks for peeking in.
Have a wonderful day today.
