Inspired By Silke (FS63)

The Featured Stamper this week is Sparklegirl. Her real name is Silke; isn't that a pretty name?! Today was the first time I've really gone through her beautiful gallery.

I chose to CASE this card ---->

Now, you need to understand that her card was in answer to a Ways To Use It Challenge where we were challenged to use designer paper for EVERYTHING on the card except the base card. Look at what a great job she did! When I saw this card, I remembered some little square motifs I've had in a baggie in my stash for years! Isn't that interesting!!!

I started with a Groovy Guava base card. The designer paper on the right is "Afternoon Tea" (available from the Occasions Mini Catalog). I matted my three little motifs on Chocolate Chip. I also matted a piece of "Ginger Blossom" designer paper on Chocolate Chip, then I adhered the motifs to that panel with pop dots. I eliminated the tab, but I did use a sentiment. I punched a flower with the Boho Blossoms Punch, stamped "Hugs & Kisses" from All Holidays with Chocolate Chip ink, then I mounted that on a 1" circle punched out of Chocolate Chip card stock. I punched at the top of that with the 1/16" Circle Punch and threaded nylon coated beading wire through it to attach the tag to the ribbon.
