Just Add Ink 181

Hello there peeps! How is the weekend so far? Mine is going pretty well. I got a lot of projects done yesterday and even got to watch some TV, which I never do! Unfortunately my office mate Danielle has decided to share her cold with me. I haven’t been sick in ages so thanks Danielle for helping me to remember how much fun a cold is! LOL!

One of the projects that I got to create yesterday was my card for this week’s Just Add Ink color challenge…

JAI Colors 180

I really love these colors, especially the addition of silver! The base of my card starts off with a piece of Bermuda Bay Card Stock and the background is a piece of Brushed Silver Card Stock that I embossed with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The frame in the middle is created with the Squares Collection Framelits Dies and the background insert is the Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set stamped in Bermuda Bay. Across the bottom I used the Epic Day This & That Rotary Stamp and stamped an important date. LOL! All of the stamped elements on the frame and across the bottom of the card are from the Hello, Lovely Stamp Set. The three images across the bottom are punched out with the 1″ Square Punch. I used the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch to create my fat feathers and adhered them behind a Neutrals Designer Button that is threaded with some Silver 1/8″ Ribbon. I really love the card and it’s collage look. The feathers were fun and easy to make and the Brushed Silver CS embosses great! Thank you very much for visiting me today and taking a look at my card for this week’s Just Add Ink color challenge. Enjoy your Sunday!
