I'm always thankful for all of you who stop by to visit my blog and leave comments. The card today is inspired by two challenges: Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #44 and Friday Mashup Sketch Challenge #36. The inspiration challenge has a quiet elegance to it and I hope I captured that with my card.
My base is Certainly Celery card stock. I added a strip of Soft Suede cardstock and designer series paper to Old Olive card stock and attached Certainly Celery striped ribbon with a knot tied on one end. This whole layer was adhered to the card front. The image from Always Elegant stamp set was stamped on Very Vanilla with the Old Olive craft spot and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I rounded the corners with the Corner punch. The image was matted with a piece of Old Olive card stock. Thanks from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set was stamped on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla with Old Olive ink, punched out with one end of the Decorative Label punch, and attached to the back of the image layer. I then popped up the whole layer with dimensionals on the card. Pearls were added to give it a little "class". We will be making this card in a class I'm having this weekend. Have a great Tuesday.
