Hi gang! I am still working on my next box of cards for Operation Write Home’s* Duty.Honor.Cards card drive. If you are not familiar with Operation Write Home, please check out their site and spread some love by making cards for our heroes!

  I seem to have trouble picking a cardmaking style; does that make me weird?  I started with shabby and still love it, but I have been practicing CAS and have learned to love it too. Oh, I don’t know, but today is a shabby day!

Oh yeah. I am so in love with the light colors and feminine feel of this paper.  It is definitely a “go-to” paper stack for me!   I have a new Cuttlebug embossing folder with matching border. It is called Palm Leaves and is what I used on the far right panel. 

This card was designed using the Inspired by Stamping inspiration sketch IBSIC12 and the inspiration photo at The Shabby Tea Room.  I’ll show you these after the card, but I love how the two combined into a perfectly feminine card. 

Some stitching on my sewing machine, Spellbinders, blue rhinestones from Recollections, lace from AC Moore and ribbon from Really Reasonable ribbon finish of this card.


Inspired by Stamping IBSIC 12

I also made this card for:
