Silver Lining

Hello and happy weekend everyone! I’m off on a Live Action Role Play adventure on Saturday (that’s like a Renaissance Festival combined with Dungeons and Dragons) but before I go I wanted to share this card with you!

This card was inspired by two different challenges. The first is CASology Challenge #210!

Caseology Week 209 - Watercolor

The second is Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #60!


I like this “L” shaped layout a lot. It makes for nice, easy, “Clean and Simple” style cards.

I used my Swirly Scribbles thinlit dies from Stampin’ Up! to cut both the swirl and the flower. The flower is a light purple paper somewhere between Sweet Sugarplum from Stampin’ Up! and the Passion Flower recommended by the challenge. I added a little Rich Razzleberry shadow to the edges with sponging.

The grey polka dot paper is A Little Foxy designer series paper from Stampin’ Up! There are so many cute designs in that paper stack! I love the gray ones especially, because they are so versatile!

With a sentiment like this one, you have to have a little sparkle on your card! I added a rhinestone to the flower and used a strip of polka dot silver washi tape. I found this washi tape at Michaels and have been wanting to use it; finally I had the perfect excuse!

Now I’m off to pack my bag: robe, magic wand, spell book… check, check, and check!

Thanks for visiting and happy stamping!
