IC121 - Lilly

Hope you are enjoying your weekend already????

I got to sleep in a little bit...
- which for me is a great start into the day!!!

Have you seen today's
Inspiration Challenge #121 on SCS???

It's about getting inspired by something out of your own home - very cool!!!

So I was wandering thru my house to see what I could get inspired by and I stopped at this majestic
fake painting we have bought at Kirkland's.
That reminded my of a stamp that I have bought believe it or not at "BIG LOTS" - LOL!!!

Yup it was only $2.00!!! I thought it's beautiful and hey for that prize....I had to put in my basket.

My majestic painting is full of wonderful colors too, but I wanted to focus more on the framing which reflects the fab framing on the stamp.

The colors White and Black were chosen by Sara aka "hiinaz" on SCS.
Thank you Sara I love these colors too!!!

Here is what I have done with the card. I inked the framing around the stamp with Versamark and stamped it on Basic Black and embossed it with White EP. The Lilly's were stamped with Basic Black ink and I tailored it to fit the inside of the Black CS. The White and Black CS were raised with Stampin Dimensionals. For a little bit more drama I used the Sheer Black Ribbon from Michael's and the Black Brads from SU.

Have a great weekend and if you like stop by again soon - maybe I have picked you colors next.....Don't forget to sign up for my Blog Candy~TFL~!!!
