SC174 Illuminations





I liked yesterday's Color Combo #164 so much I had to combined it with today's Sketch Challenge!!!

I have used one of my favorite Stamp Set's called "Illuminations"!!! I think you can still buy it, it's on the Dormant List - make sure you check with your SU Demonstrator!!!

I really like how it turned out - this card has a dramatic vibe - LOL!!! I wish my bow would have turned out a little better......

Anyway - I hope you get a chance to play today!!!

Also stay tuned I'll be giving away some major
BLOG CANDY soon!!!

Great card Silke! I actually have not had time this week to do my blurfing. I had to come here first and check out what you've been up to. I have to tell you that all of your cards you've posted lately are amazing. I really love the one for the Be Inspired challenge. You make cardmaking seem effortless!

Silke,

I am fairly new to the stamping world (about 6 months now) and just came across your blog today. I LOVE your work. Most cards that I have seen incorporate so much and I think they are almost "overdone." That is not my style so I have been struggling with ideas lately. Your work is amazing b/c it is fairly plain but it is absolutely beautiful. And by plain, I don't mean that you aren't using lots of accessories - you just don't overdo it. I've never seen anyone use so much white and it's lovely. I only wish SU! white and vanilla cardstocks were as thick as their other colors. You have just gained another loyal visitor - keep up the awesome work and thanks for the inspiration!

It's a gorgeous card (and I think the bow looks great!) - you are making me want to try the Colour Challenge that I initially thought would be too tough... :)
