INSPIRATION CHALLENGE~~FABULOUS FRIEND


I created this card for today's Inspiratation Challenge. I used this LIGHT SWITCH PLATE as my inspiration.
I used my brayer and Old Olive ink to ink up my Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder. I placed a piece of Shimmery Gold Cardstock in it and ran it thru my Cuttlebug.
I was quite pleased with how it turned out. I wanted to keep as much of the background as visible as possible. I just added a sentiment and a ribbon treatment using my Bow Easy.
Card Supplies:
Stamps: SU ~ Oval All
Paper: Gold Shimmery Cardstock, Black, Old Olive
Ink: Black Staz-on, Old Olive
Accessories: Brayer, Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder, Cuttlebug, Bow Easy, Sheer Ribbons, dimensionals, Large & Scalloped Oval punches, Circle Nesties, Photo Corner Punch
This card came together pretty quick and easy.
Thanks for looking.
