BE INSPIRED | SALE-A-BRATION

Welcome to July's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! This month the theme is Sale-A-Bration, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created! P lease be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team.  The Stylish Sketches Stamp Set was my first pick of the Sale-A-Bration items this time! I love the images and possibilities with this set. For my card I started with a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock, then stamped and embossed the image in gold. I water-coloured the background with Crumb Cake and the image in Blackberry Bliss and Evening Evergreen. The result reminds me of fabric! I added the splatters with the Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker and the ribbon was cut through the center to create a double bow. I also added a couple of gold dots! Next up in today's hop is my lovely and inspirational friend Louise in Australia. I always look forward to seeing the gorgeous creations Louise has to share with us. Be Inspire
