I'm on a roll

I feel so good lately! I think I have my mojo back! I was checking out the challenges over on SCS this morning and decided to wander over to the challenges. I love the inspiration challenges, but for me, they are certainly that, a challenge. For some reason, this morning was different. As soon as I saw what they were (there are three) my mind went right to the dress that Carrie had on in the new movie "Sex In The City". I immediately grabbed my pad of paper and sketched this card out.
I used my cuttlebugged acetate technique that was showcased in the spring issue of Take Ten (shameless plug). I also tried Beate's scored grid technique for the black backround piece. I just love how this turned out.


Recipe
Stamps: Calla Lily (?) Small Script (Stampin Up) Floral Fantasy (Judikins). Paper: Acetate,Vanilla, Black, DP (My Minds Eye). Inks: Black Pigment, Black Stazon. Accessories: Ribbon, Scallop Circle Punch, Piercing Tool, Small Circle Scallop Punch, Brads, Cricut & George Cartridge, Cuttlebug & Floral Folder, Dimentionals.

I stamped the image on Acetate using Stazon. I also stamped the image on DP. I cut the flowers out and glued them to the back of the acetate using Scotch glue. I then stamped the background stamp on vanilla using pigment ink. Let that dry and then attached the stamped acetate to the stamped vanilla with Scotch glue. I then ran the entire piece through the cuttlebug. The corner accents were made by punching a scallop circle and then dividing it evenly into fours. Like I said before. I just love how this turned out. I am gonna give this to my daughter who graduates next week. Calla Lilies are her favorite flower.

This card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I just love square cards , especially when the image is so large.

I'm gonna head back to my stamping room. There are a few more challenges I want to do and I have the time to do them. Don't you just love it when your stamping time and creative mojo coincide?

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN
