Happy Thursday, friends! It's good to be back from a little break...in fact not just a break, I had a Stampcation -- yes! A whole weekend of stamping, inspiration, prizes, make 'n' takes and fabulous Stampin Up product displays all dreamed up by the creative talents of Linda Heller and Shantaie Fowler. I can't thank Linda and Shantaie enough for their support....I was honored and delighted to be asked to present at the event!
I even had my very own board--so cool! Don't I look giddy in this pic?! So today's card is a big thank you to Linda & Shantaie for giving me such a fantastic opportunity and for planning such an amazing event--thanks gals, you ROCK! Alright, on to this week's gorgeous color combination from Create with Connie & Mary, take a look:
Aren't they beautiful?! I combined these colors with Anne Marie's fabulous Paper Players sketch:
and with thoughts of a Tiffany gift box in mind, I went for classic and elegant when I created this:
Oh these colors are so pretty together! The bold background panels are from the Timeless Portrait DSP which I layered over Pool Party cardstock that was spritzed with homemade Champagne Mist shimmer spray...it's so difficult to capture the sparkle but take a look:
The flower is made from three fussy-cut Fabulous Florets images which I layered and embellished with Dazzling Details and seven, yes seven Basic Rhinestones...it is Anne Marie's sketch after all! :-)
And since my Stampcation presentation was all about carrying the design through to the inside of the card, I had to finish this one too:
Thankful thoughts of opportunity, sharing what you love and friends made along the way...I am one lucky girl. If you've made it to the end of this post, thanks for sticking with me. I hope I've inspired you to ink up these gorgeous colors and make something pretty! Be sure to check out the rest of the team over at Create with Connie & Mary where you are sure to find some yummy eye candy!
