When I was browsing through Feline Playful at the challenges this photo inspiration from Pinspirational Challenges really caught my eye.
A card didn’t immediately spring to mind but I knew I’d be making a card with it and here it is!
I used the pink from the flowers for my main background, the white-washed wood grain for the centre panel and then added pops of red with the flower, red stickles and drops of liquid pearls.
The sentiment is made up with a mix of prima word stickers and a pink paislee sentiment stamp and I also added some faux stitching around the wood grain panel.
All papers used are by MME.
I made this card at the weekend, Who knew I’d need to take the sentiment to heart at that time!
I really like the combination of grey and yellow together, kind of reminds me of the 80s. I’m pretty sure I had a yellow and grey tracksuit when I was little
My card style is evolving somewhat. I’m really addicted to stamping at the moment.
Where is the stamping? I hear you ask. I stamped the striped grey panel with a damask background stamp by Inkadinkado in Versamark and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. You can just about tell on this photo.
I trimmed the beautiful butterfly from one of the pages of the DCWV Mariposa paper stack
- Hero Arts Sentiment Stamp
- Inkadinkado Damask Background stamp
- Mariposa Butterfly (trimmed from one of the papers from the stack)
- Tea Stain Distress Inks

I’m close to being as happy as I can be with how the site now looks. I’m going to keep it quite clean and uncluttered.
All of the links to my design teamies are now on the Design Team page but I just wanted to put the last DT projects back on my blog.
The Charisma Cardz challenge ends this evening and it was my chosen theme of Stitches, real or faux – bet you’d never have guessed that was my theme eh?
