Card Concept Challenge #47

Hi everyone! How are you doing?  We had so many wonderful cards entered in the last challenge and today we have another fantastic challenge for you at The Card Concept.  The inspiration photo has some lovely neutral colors and a lovely cake to inspire you. So let's get to my card which is in the Clean & Simple style.

I pulled out a really old SU set called Event Full because I thought this stamp was kinda fun. I've been playing with foil lately and wanted to try adding some to this card. I thought the bronze and silver foil would work well for the colors in the challenge. I used Score Tape to apply the foil. The bronze worked well but the silver just did not want to come off. I rubbed and rubbed and pretty much had to pull the stuff off with my fingers. Anyway, that's why the silver may look at bit roughed up.

Finally I spritzed on some bronze with a metallic Sharpie, added a few sequins and popped the top layer up on dimensionals. I also used the bronze Sharpie to fill in the wheels.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with. Have fun and check out the rest of the Design Team!!

Stamps: Event Full (SU)
Paper: Very Vanilla (SU)
Ink: Close to Cocoa (SU)
Other: Spritzer (SU), Bronze Sharpie, Transfer foil by Ranger (Basics & Vintage), sequins (Avery Elle), dimensionals, Score Tape 1/8"

I needed a quick sympathy card for a friend at church. I've had Papertrey's Garden Grace for a long time and had not used it. This seemed like the perfect time.

I grabbed my Misti and it was so easy to line up the leaves and flowers. I also thought that I would try Jennifer McGuire's trick of using craft foam between layers and it worked quite nicely. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Stamps: Garden Grace, Think Big Favorites #3 (PTI)
Paper: White (PTI)
Ink: Melon Mambo (SU), Hibiscus Burst, Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse (PTI)
Other: Misti stamp tool, white craft foam, Score Tape
