Hello Lovely

Hi and welcome!  This week is my turn to host over at Inspired By All the Little Things and here is the inspiration photo I've chosen:


There is so much to be inspired by in this photo, and I knew the perfect guest to make a card based on these elements - the one-and-only Michele Ferguson of I Card Everyone.  Michele is one of the friendliest people in this wonderful little community of ours and I'm glad to know her.

For my card, I was inspired by the black and white pattern as well as the bright flowers and the silver elements.



I used some flowers and foliage stamped from a SugarPea Designs set and the sentiment from a NBUS set from Concord & 9th.  I stenciled black ink onto a card panel and then arranged the arrangement of flowers in the bottom left corner.  The sentiment was both stamped in black and embossed in silver and I also added some silver-embossed splatters across the panel.




I have a video showing how I made this card if you're interested.  Click here to head over to YouTube or watch below.




Thanks for visiting.  Michele and the design team have some gorgeous cards so please check them out.
