A Happy Hello



It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we have an inspiration board for you. This challenge is a fun cross between a photo challenge and a color challenge. You can choose to be inspired by the colors, the photograph, or both!




I don't know for sure why, but my mind kept drawing a blank when I looked at this board. In the end, I incorporated both the stars and the color scheme into my card.

  • Lace Hearts Dies (Spellbinders) 
  • Labels Ten Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
  • Sponge Daubers
  • Flowers and Leaves Slim Punch (EK Success)
  • Large Pearl
  • Seam Binding (for the crinkle ribbon)
  • Distress Ink (Ranger) in these colors:
    • Antique Linen
    • Brushed Corduroy
  • Repeat Impressions Stamps:

The first thing I saw was the beautiful crinkle ribbon bow, so pretty. Then the heart doiley- and then the postcard stamp. (It should be at my house soon), what a great card.
