IC149 *Little Paper Shop's* Preview #2



Hello everyone!!! Hope you are enjoying your weekend???

I planned on going to bed early tonight, but I couldn't sleep....again. So I started browsing the SCS gallery and to my pleasant surprise I saw the Inspirations Challenge posted - waahhooo!!! Since everyone in my house is already sleeping I thought I'd play along!!!

If you have not seen the IC149 yet - make sure to check it out!!! Steph has inspired us with some pretty cool looking Japanese *water coloring* creations!!!

Here is the piece I took for my inspiration. Sorry - I didn't feel like getting everything dirty late at night....so I took the easy approach and just stamped!!! This inspired *Love Letter* fits perfect with the second preview for *Little Paper Shop*. This Set is called *Flourished Dove* - I like all the *swirled* pieces on this Set and the pretty doves - perfect for a *Love Letter*!!!

My card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". I started out with a Basic Black CS. Next I've inked the swirls on the right and left side. Then I added the pretty *Smitten Heart* Rhinestones from K&Company (LSS). Next I've stamped the doves and added the sentiment. Once I was done with the stamping part I layered the image onto a Basic Black CS. Then I raised it with Stampin Dimensionals before I layered it onto the Pretty in Pink CS. Next I started piercing around the Pretty in Pink CS. To finish it all up I've added the Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon.

Swing by the *Little Paper Shop* blog in the morning to see the other cards from the Design Team!!! If you like go down one post and check out the card I have made for Preview #1!!!
Have a good night or a good morning....~TFL~
