Aspire

Today's card uses a Penny Black stamp I've been eyeing for quite a while that just arrived on my doorstep yesterday. I'm such a fan of Penny Black florals - they make me so happy! I decided to play with this week's SCS sketch challenge and cut into the Noteworthy paper by Making Memories that I've been hoarding the last couple months. I started by stamping Aspire on Pearlized White Cardstock with Ancient Page Coal Black. I then colored with Copic markers and highlighted with a little Stardust Stickles. Next I matted on Purely Pomegranate and used my Scor-Pal to add a little embossed frame to the image. The card base and the horizontal strip are Soft Sky card stock stamped wiht French Flair in the same color ink. The patterned paper is from the Noteworthy Collection and I tied a Pomegranate satin knotted bow around the top edge. The baubles are some clear cheapos from Michael's that I colored with my Copics to match the card. I finished by stamping the May All Your Wishes Come True from the Wonderful Wishes Remixed set in Purely Pomegranate in the corner.
