Inspired by a friend!

craftingforeverThis morning, I had a chat with a Stamping friend over Facebook messenger.  She said something that inspired me to make a card.  I quote, “I should be cleaning instead of crafting! But crafting is more fun!”  Courtney, you don’t know what you did!  I immediately thought of this stamp set. Crafting Forever was used to make this fun card.  Any and all of my crafting friends needs a card like this!  LOL

So, the color combo is Whisper White, Basic Gray and Sweet Sugarplum (I am going to be really sad when this color retires).  I know it’s hard to see but I stamped off the Basic Gray and the Sweet Sugarplum on the scissors and baker’s twine (well that’s what I think it is) images.  The “Made with Love” stamp was full on ink.  The background is, of course, the embossing paste with our Pattern Party Decorative mask.  I used Stitched Shapes framelits for the sentiment; 5/8″ burlap ribbon (just one strand pulled from the ribbon) for the curly cue behind the Sentiment.  I used the last of the Pearl Basic Jewels on my sheet (there was two tiny ones – I used those on the period and exclamation point) and 5 in a string just on the banner.  You will notice a doily (well a 1/2 of one) as well.  This card is much prettier in person……

Thank you for the inspiration, Courtney!!
