I love today’s inspiration picture. Jenn had sent it to me a while ago. I picked the colors and the silhouette look from this challenge.


The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 6″ piece of Bashful Blue cardstock folded in half to make a 3″ x 5 1/2″ card base.

One of the border stamps from Beautiful Borders was stamped in Chocolate Chip on a 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. It was overlayed with a transparency strip of the same size. I taped them together on the top of the strips and paper pierced the bottom edge. You can’t see the acetate layer on the picture, but it makes the stamped strip shiny and add more resemblance to the glasses.

I added a Chocolate Strip underneath both layers. That bottom of that layer was punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. The layers were adhered to the bottom half of the card base and tied Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon on the upper edge of the layers.

The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the small oval punch. It was layered on half of a 1 3/8″ bashful blue circle and half of a chocolate scallop circle. I added a paper pierced border underneath the sentiment. These layers were adhered to the top right of the strip. I used a modified version of the WSC8 layout.

My little flower was punched out with the Three for you Punch out of Bashful Blue cardstock. The edges were sponged with a sponge dauber and Bashful Blue. A 1/4″ Whisper White circle was added in it’s center and topped with a brown brad. The flower was adhered with dimensionals.

Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
