Hi! This card was made for today's Inspiration challenge: National Scrapbooking Day. We were to make a card that was inspired by a scrapbook page.
I was really tired when I read the challenge and ended up falling asleep on the floor of my bedroom while dragging things out from under my bed...(Hey, doesn't EVERYONE keep completed scrapbooks under their beds???) That's right...I FELL asleep...I'm such a party pooper! LOL!
I woke up to the "Hiss and Growl" game played by Speedy the Cat and Spittie Kittie... And, since I was covered in fighting cat bodies, I figured it was time to get up and stamp! LOL!
So....I whipped out this mini scrapbook, (funny, I could have sworn I looked on my STAMPIN' Table FIRST! GEEZ!), that I made 2 weeks ago and decided to make a card based on the pages shown here: http://stampinwithmarkiesmom.blogspot.com/
The stamps are from Innovative Stamp Creations. I love this beautiful swirly flower! I applied marker directly to the stamp and then stamped onto Whisper White. Then, I added dots, and sponged the edges. (I also added Rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.)
A different image from ISC was stamped in Versa Mark and embossed in White. I added dots and rhinestones.
The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black onto Whisper White and daubered heavily.
The HodgePodge Hardware was colored with a Sharpie and then dots were added with an Inkssentions Gel Pen.
