CC184, BIC23 Happiness Always and Thanks


Happy Tuesday everyone!!! I had to sneak in today's CC184 - Basic Gray, Riding Hood Red and Always Artichoke -with my BIC cards....hope you don't mind?!?

Wasn't sure how it would turn out....the Color Combo Emily has choosen are all darker colors, but with some White CS it turned out really nice.

All items are from SU except the Pewter Brads (Making Memories Value Pack).

Hope you like it???




Today Beate has chosen this beautiful *Living Room* - lots of inspiring images to choose from.
I was inspired by the *Love seat* . As soon as I saw the pattern I knew I would use the striped DP from the new *Urban Garden* Collection. The pillow in the Inspiration Photo matches the *Kiwi Kiss* color and I've added that to my card as well.

Actually I've made two cards today....I wasn't too crazy about the card I have made down below, but what the heck I thought I'd show it to you anyways....LOL!!!

Anyway - here is some info about my first card.....If you have seen the OCC Challenge this past Saturday - you already know that Amy Sheffer has choosen this fabulous Sketch and I had to use it again!!!

I've inked up my *Live Your Dream* Set. The flowers were inked in Kiwi Kiss, Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze. The added flower is from the new SU *Flower* Design Brads and I've topped it with a light blue Gemstones from Hero Arts plus the three larger Gemstones on the left side.


This next card was stamped with the retired Sell-A-Bration *Happy Harmony* Set.

If tried to incorporate the colors from the DP onto the flowers. I've inked them in Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Going Gray and Kiwi Kiss.

To dress up the card - I've added the new Kiwi Kiss Ribbon and some Jumbo Pewter Eyelets plus Brads.

Hope we have inspired you to play along and please stop by all the super talented ladies from Beate's team!!!
Have a great day and ~TFL~!!!

I was so tempted to use the Haiku paper for Beate's Inspiration Challenge. You nailed it perfectly. Love all your deets on both cards. My favorite? The tiny flower brad with the rhinestone on the sentiment. Hugs Mary
