BIC4 - Close As a Memory












Beate is featuring her "Be Inspired Challenge" # 4 today and this is the card I made for it.

For my card I used Groovy Guava as the base. Then I placed a DP from the new "Afternoon Tea" series on the right hand side and Natural Cardstock on the left.

The Natural Cardstock was stamped with the "French Scirpt" BG stamp and I inked it in "Close to Cocoa" for it.

The main image was stamped from the "Close As a Memory" set straight onto the card with "Craft Chocolate Chip" Ink and I embossed it with clear EP. It makes the image stand out much better!!! I also distressed the edges of the card with Chocolate Chip Ink.

The sentiment is also from the same set and I embossed it with the same color. I placed it on Groovy Guava and before I added it to the card I accessorized it with the new Poly-Twill Ribbon.

Hope you get inspired too!!! ~TFL~

This is a beautiful card. I have the set sitting right here next to me since I need to send out two sympathy cards. The paper is on its way on Thursday. Hmmm, what's a girl to do. TFS
