Inspired By Challenge Entry IB187

Happy Sunday everyone!! 

I am popping quickly today with a card that I created for this weeks Inspired By Challenge #IB187. I am hoping they are going to accept it as I DID NOT make a fall card.

Instead, I used the black window, the wood sentiment board and the yellow flowers and blueish eucalyptus branch as my color inspiration.

I started off by swishing Hero Arts *Unicorn Pigment Ink across the front of a Kraft A2 sized card base. I then die cut a frame using the Spellbinders *Candlewick Etched Dies from Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock. (and a shout out here-*Spellbinders is having a warehouse sale. I spent a lot of money there myself this week-don't tell my husband!!)

I used Simple Stories Vintage Lemon Twist *die cuts and stickers on this card for my embellishments. The gingham paper is from the Simple Stories Vintage Lemon Twist 6" by 8" paper pad. 

I popped some of my embellishments up with foam adhesive and added some clear sparkle pen in some areas. Other areas I used *Glossy Accents to enhance a portion of my die cut. 

I bought some Nuvo Vintage Peppermint Candy colored drops and used them to create the "enamel" dots to finish my card off.

I know I didn't use "traditional" stamps on my card but I really like how this came out. I have a couple more that I created but will post them at a later date. 

That is all from me today. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS Sunday!!

No matter the season, I could never NOT love this darling card, Nora! I'm loving the frame, the distressed kraft card base, and OF COURSE your sweet butterfly and lovely gingham! Simple Stories has the best ephemera, don't they? Which never seems to make it to a card around here! lol
You have created a little masterpiece here, my friend! Thanks so much for joining us this week at IB!
