For today's inspiration challenge, Denizmom's Etsy Store, I chose this giraffe: http://www.etsy.com/listing/55281611...gurumi-pattern I made this 60th anniversary card for my parents. I stamped my image in Black and then used my versa mark pen to color the areas before using pastel chalks. I like how this made the pastel colors more vibrant. I also used the texturz plate for the horizontal panel, popped up the flower panel and added some black pearls. Thanks for looking! ~Roberta

What a cool way to do the versamark and chalk on this lovely card. The design is great..I like how the black edging really shows off against the white and brings the butterfly and the flowers to attention. And congratulations to your parents on their anniversary!! That is awesome!!!
