Ahh, coffee and a good friend!

Here's a card I made with a fun palate of colors on the Colour Create Challenge Blog.  I saw the colors and picture of those two gorgeous girls and had to play along!

I sure want to figure out how to take better pictures of these cards, everything looks so dull!  Please PRETEND you see the vibrant green, deep purple, and cream in this card.

I used LOTV Coffee Break stamp (a personal favorite), and LOTV Mixed Circular Sentiments, Copic markers on the girls with some Glossy Accents here and there, Ranger Distress ink, and Stampendous white embossing powder.  The ribbon, bling, and paper are from my scraps, but thankfully I can say that the striped paper is My Mind's Eye.  The scallop mat I cut with my Silhouette, it was actually feathers from a free turkey download I received around Thanksgiving time!  I cut the girls out and sat them on the ribbon with foam adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I would love any suggestions for brighter pictures if you have them, thanks!
Have a great day!

  2. What a lovely card Kara. Great colour combination. I love this stamp too. but have only used it once. I bought so many stamps I am busy working my way through them. I am a fussy cutter too, can't abide white edges, your cutting is perfect.
