Silver Stripes And Everything Nice

ColorQ
 
I know gold is all the rage right now, but I have always been more of a silver girl. The beautiful Silver Fancy Foil vellum in the Occasions catalog is so pretty. It is one of the supplies you hate to use because you enjoy looking at it just as much as you do using it! My color inspiration comes from the current ColorQ challenge:
 
 
 

  To create my card I used my "go to" Stampin' Up! floral set - Stippled Blossoms. I stamped the blooms using Pink Pirouette, and Strawberry Slush ink. The leaves were stamped using Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive. (I don't have any Sage Shadow ink!) Now, the color medium I do have of Sage Shadow is a set of SU chalks from 10 years ago. So, it is difficult to tell from the picture but, the doily on my card was colored using Sag Shadow chalk, and a foam makeup sponge! I knew it was a good idea to hold onto my chalks! The sentiment is from the April SU Paper Pumpkin kit. Using white embossing powder and the SU Hardwood background stamp I heat embossed my wood grain background to add a subtle touch of texture. I also added a bit of machine stitching on my silver striped vellum. Speaking of stitching I am also adding this card to the current Virginia's View Challenge which features, you guessed it, stitching!

           I totally love this card, and I hope you do to! Thank you for stopping by!
