Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #44


Hi Stamping Friends!!!
This post is much later than I wanted it to be.  But when you don't start stamping your Stamping Celebration card for today's challenge until 8:30 am this morning, things tend to run a little behind!!  :)  I wanted to stamp yesterday, but just couldn't squeeze it in.  So this morning I felt quite rushed and had to keep things a little simple.

BECAUSE I CARE

STAMPS:  Beacuse I Care, Great Friend
PAPER:  Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Very Vanila
ACCESSORIES:  Decorative Label Punch, Circle Punches, Basic Pearls, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Champagne Glass Glitter

Sketch Challenge:  PALS PAPER ARTS #85
Reipe Challenge:  STAMPIN' ROYALTY #63 Texturize

I love the soft greens and golds in the inspiration photos.  Very elegant.  It doesn't look very pretty in the picture, but the Champagne Glass Glitter really adds some elegant sparkle to the flower.  I did a little bit of thumping on the flower with my More Mustard and Soft Suede markers.  I should have done a little more.  But since I was pressed for time, I had to leave well enough alone!!  I hope you will stop by the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge and play along with us this week.  We would love to have you as our next Party Guest Designer!!

Tomorrow will be my second segment of For Real Friday.  I do have a card I will be sharing, so I hope you at least stop by for the stamping stuff.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

I really like how you did the background of the card. It's such a subtle transition from the card stock to the DSP. Really cool!
