A Productive Evening

The last card for Saturday's Stamp-A-Stack came together quickly last night, again with inspiration from Splitcoast. I used Garden Silhouettes again, and paired River Rock, Soft Sky and Always Artichoke. This card was what I CASE'd; it's called Artichoke Garden by scrapperaddict. Take a minute and follow the link so that you can admire her handiwork! It really has a lot more going on than mine does, but I still like how it turned out.

I didn't have the piercing kit, the designer paper she used, the hemp twine, or the jumbo eyelets, so I improvised. I created my own "designer paper" using AA card stock and ink, along with a stamp from another set. I substituted SS as the background mat for the main image, and added some twill ribbon that I had received on a set of towels. I'm getting hooked on what eyelets can add, and I think the silver works, don't you?

I cut all the pieces parts for each of the other cards except this one last night, so I don't have much left to do before Saturday morning. Good thing, since I need to get the main floor vacuumed because Bob invited 2 families for dinner tonight. I also picked up a shift at the store today, so that eats into the prep time for this company. At least you have something fun to look at as you start your day! Wish more of you were able to come Saturday, but I'll catch you next time. Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to reading your comments.

The silver is purr-fect. Goes nicely with the pale elements. This is really a stunner.
