CC185 Footprints and BIC24 Inspired by Nature


Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I think Tuesday is my favorite kinda day....We have Beate's *Be Inspired* Challenge and the Color Combo Challenge - I don't think it can get any better??!!??

Today's CC#185 - is simply beautiful - Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss.

For this card I have used my gorgeous new soon to be released (October 1st!!!) *Our Daily Bread Designs* Set called *Footprints in the Sand* - did I mention I love, love, love Kelly Hollands Scripture Stamps and I'm so grateful that she has asked me to be a Guest Designer in October and November!!! (click on the picture to see a detailed view)

Here is the next *Be Inspired* Challenge #24 from Beate!!! This time Beate has chosen this *Glassware*. Simply beautiful and great colors!!!

I took these wonderful colors from the glasses as inspiration for my card . I used Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White for my card base.

My card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".

I was finally able to use my new *Inspired by Nature* Set - YEAHHHH!!! I stamped the *grass* image with Kiwi Kiss first and then I've inked my *flower* image with Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip Ink. Next I trimmed the whole image down to my liking and layered it onto Tangerine Tango CS.

Next I added some Medium Copper Brads in each corner and then I raised this panel with Stamp Dimensionals before I layered it onto a Baja Breeze CS. Next I started piercing right around the sides and added Stampin Dimensionals again before I've layered it onto Chocolate Chip CS. The CC CS was adhered to the Whisper White card base. At last I added the Chocolate Chip Poly-Twill Ribbon.

Hope you like it??? ~TFL~
