I finally got some time to myself and the Inspirational Challenge to-day was the perfect creative outlet. What a fabulous site. I was inspired by all the curves and bumps of these candlesticks http://globaltable.com/product_view.php?id=114 . I haven't used this lace folder from SU for a while and the Martha Stewart border punch was the perfect 'go-with'. The flowers are from Nellie Snellen double punches (punching and embossing) and the small flowers are an unknown $tore purchase. The lines are stickers from starform. To-day was a good day to stay inside and create as it is raining and foggy out. I was going to do some housework but my Mother always told me that 'Housework ruins your good looks' and she would never tell a fib!

This is so pretty! Love the combination of dies and punches you've used. The sponged edges tie them together so beautifully. I wondered what happened - I thought I'd just growth old - but I guess the cause is my fanatical housekeeping.

Oh, Sue, this is so pretty. Btw, your Mother is correct. I have a little wooden doll I picked up at a craft show years ago. She looks quite a mess, with a sign on her that says "housework makes me ugly" LOL.
Love your card :-)

This is gorgeous! I love the earthy colors and all the embossing is just fabulous! You better believe I'll stay away from housework, lol. Not just because your mother said so, but that's a good reason :)
