IC140 'Everything'

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Today's card is another challenge combo. I used Jen del Muro's 'sketch for you to try',

and I know I will be using it again, it's so fun! I combined that with SCS's inspiration challenge, Ophra's Table,

I love the cool patterns and details in this photo! I tend to stay with softer colors in most of my projects, but these colors really rock together, and it took me out of my comfort zone, which is one reason why I love challenges so much!!

I started with a Taken with Teal card stock base and stamped my background with Teal ink. I added a strip of Rose Red cs on the side. I cut a circle of white cs and adhered it to my card. I stamped my Always heart on white cs twice with Teal ink and colored in some areas with Rose Red. I cut out one of the images and layered it on the other with dimensionals, matted the panel with Rose Red cs, added the sentiments and adhered it to my card. I stamped my cool new Inkadinkado Flowers stamp on white cs with Rose Red ink, colored in some areas with Teal, cut out the image and attached it to my card with dimensionals. Then I added lots of Stickles and gems all over!

I gotta say that I really miss my camera. Scanning cards and projects to upload just doesn't look the same as a nice photo. But as I've said before, I'm definitely grateful for what I have, and I really shouldn't complain. My life is filled with wonderful blessings, and the most cherished ones are not material!

I hope you all have a great week end, and thanks so much for stopping by! Keep Smiling a lot too! :):)
