SSSC54 and Keesh's Inspiration Challenge #17


Wow, 4 posts in the one week! You can tell there's NO housework getting done at my house :)

I thought i'd be a bit clever and combine challenges again. I've also made a different card fold this time, called an easel. These are super easy, and super cute!

Makeeshas Inspiration picture makes me think of a formal occasion, so I thought I'd make an engagement card for some dear friends of mine who have recently announced their imminent betrothal! (about time AMY!!)

And Karen's sketch is just fabulous! This is so versatile, and one I think I'll be coming back to again, and again.

So here is what I came up with.

And a close-up of the detail..

Stamps: Cheers To You, Happy Everything, Baroque Motifs
Cardstock and paper: Not Quite Navy textured c/s, Kraft, Very Vanilla, Bella Bleu and Urban Garden DSP
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand (sponging)
Embellishments: Kraft taffeta ribbon, cream half pearl from Pretties Kit, Eyelet border punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, CM cutting system (for bigger circle), Mat pack, gold embossing glitter (Stamp It.. Thanks Kristin!)
All materials Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated.

Hi Lee,
