For My Wonderful Friend- Inkspirations Challenge 70

Here is my second card for the evening. As the title of this post states this card is for my wonderful friend. Elliot and I are so very lucky to have her in our lives. I need to pop this in her letterbox tomorrow but am pretty sure she won't look here and spoil the surprise. Just in case though, this card is for you Shannon, just for being you and also for lending me half your winter wardrobe so I would be warm and toasty in Melbourne. Love you xx

I used the colours from this week's Inkspirations Challenge. So pretty.

Here is my card:

Project Recipe
Stamp Sets:    Bliss; Occasional Greeting
Card/Paper:    Perfect Plum; Sahara Sand; Very Vanilla
Ink:                  Perfect Plum; Blushing Bride; Sahara Sand; Versamark
Accessories:  Circle Scissors Plus; Clear Embossing Powder; Sponges

I am not quite ready to say goodbye to the oh so lovely Bliss (Sale-A-Bration) set yet. I love the flourish, flowers and butterflies....oh you know I love it all!!!! I clear embossed the flourishes onto the middle Perfect Plum panel. The butterfly is also clear embossed. I stamped the flourish behind the sentiment in Blushing Bride and then embossed the sentiment on top of it. All of the Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla cardstock are sponged in Sahara Sand ink.

I hope you like this card as much as I do.

See you back here soon.....I promise.

Wow, you have put alot of work into this card. It is so pretty. Love the flowers and butterfly and the flourish behind the sentiment looks perfect. Great inspiration, thanks for playing along with the Inkspirations challenge this week.

hi Lou,
That card is just divine, I love everything about it!!! I love the Bliss set too but haven't done much with it, too busy making b'day cards for all my friends kids. Also the reason for not getting to play in this week''s challenge even though I LOVE the colour combo.

I channelled you yesterday and made a name sign for the little guy who lives across the road.
Have a fab rest of the week,
