More Motifs

I SO copied this card (CASE) from one posted on SplitCoastStampers. I made some color and wording changes but for the most part it's a CASE. It's been a LONG time since I've done that. It's not that there aren't a lot of cards on there to CASE, believe me, there are. But I usually try to come up with my own design. But once and a while a card comes along that you just can't add or change it much but yet it's so inspiring to you. Well, that is what happened with this card. It's ok to CASE, just give credit where credit is due.

For my card I used Sahara Sand for the center, behind that is Bravo Burgundy and the main part of the card is Night of Navy. I wanted something dark but not black. On top of the Sahara Sand I used the Fine Lace Background stamp and Sahara Sand ink pad. For the swirls on the card I used the larger stamp from the Baroque Motifs set and Night of Navy ink. The tiny flowers are also in the set and those were put on using Bravo Burgundy ink. The larger flower in the middle was stamped on Very Vanilla card stock with Bravo Burgundy ink. I used a silver brad in the center. I cut it out by hand (too bad there isn't a punch to go with that one!!) and I used a dimensional on the back to pop it up off the card. I also used the Sincere Salutations "Best Wishes" stamp for my wording. I needed an anniversary card. Then I assembled the card. And I just realized, I made a card without any sponging on it!! Rare occasion!!!

Thank you for stopping by,
