Its Card week over at Color Combos Galore, so I decided to play along using their Inspiration Board #222 and also combined a few other challenges with this to come up with today's card.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Vintage Vogue, French Script and Tiny Tags
Paper: Stampin' Up and Echo Park
Other: Sizzix Die, Button, Rhinestones.
The colours on my card were the closest I had in my scrap pile to match this challenge and the inspiration part of the challenge was to use the initials from your name to decide which elements to use on your card. For mine I used:
D - Die Cut Large Ric Rac (Sizzix Die)
A - Alphabet Letter F
N - Nine different pieces of paper/cardstock (not including the card base)
I - Ink and if that's a bit too obvious then it can stand for International Flair (required for the other challenge I used)
E - Embossing (Dry embossing used on the Ric Rac)
I used this week's sketch - Day 18 Super Sketchy Sunday from 365 Cards and by using the French Script Background I am playing along with the CCEE Stampers current challenge CCEE1211 which is to add some international flair to your card by using language, image or element. I sort of loved the idea that Friendship is a universal language particularly now with all the different social media applications such as Facebook. Staying in touch with your overseas friends has never been more easy.
I have to apologise for the quality of my image, I may take this photo again in the morning. It was another wet day here and it was late in the day when I took this, so the lighting wasn't the best.
