Here I am again....browsing and not sleeping......
and guess what the Featured Stamper Challenge #88 was already posted - wahoooo!!!
Today's lucky lady is the fabulous Mrs. Anne Ryan!!!! If you don't know Anne - let me tell ya - she is exquisite!!! She is one of the ladies over on SCS that I hope to meet one lucky day!!!
Just tonight she has left me the sweetest comment on my gallery card - that I almost broke down and cried - that's how wonderful she can make someone feel!!!
Anyway - you can see Anne's gorgeous gallery right here. This is Anne's card which inspired me to create my card!!! I've tried to keep the elegant look of the card and the only things I have really changed is that I have not used any DP and I have not done any stitching/sewing plus I used a different Stamp Set!!!
Here is a little bit of information on my card. I have added this brand new *Birthday Sentiment Set* called *Make a Wish* from *Little Paper Shop's* which we are featuring this Sunday - basically in a couple of hours.....it comes with a whole lot of other beautiful sayings. I also used the *Flourished Dove* Set from today's/yesterday's preview.
I used Soft Sky CS as my base. Next I stamped the flourished border with Close to Cocoa and distressed the bottom of the White CS. Then I layered the image onto Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip - which the CC CS is punched with the *Scalloped Edge Punch* from SU. I added some tiny pearls to the scallops. Next I stamped the sentiment (perfect for Anne's day in the spot light) and added the swirled image on the top left corner. I dressed the card up with a matching Close to Cocoa Satin Ribbon (Michaels) and the Hat Pin that I decorated with Pearls from the SU *Prettiest Kit*.
As you can tell I also decorated the inside of my card - I really love this look, but I must admit most of the times I'm a bit lazy to do so...!!!
Have a great Sunday!!!!
