Featured Stamper Challenge

Happy Day Everyone!!!

Just wanted to share my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge over on SCS. Today we are honoring K Dunbrook. Karen's gallery is packed with wonderful inspiration. THIS is Karen's card that inspired me today.
I chose to use "soft" colors today ... pink pirouette and pale plum. This Basic Grey Euphoria designer paper worked perfectly after I sponged the edges with perfect plum ink. I really like the affect of the main image panel and I never think to use this technique often enough! I stamped and embossed the image in perfect plum first then stamped again using the pink pirouette. My sentiment is from the Crafty Secrets (glamour girls) set and after sponging around the edge with pink pirouette, I used one of my piercing templates for the corner design.
Other details are the use of SU slit punch for the corner cuts on the dp, Colorbok metal dots in the corners, Hobby Lobby black organza ribbon and I used a Creative Memories round tip black marker to edge the pink pirouette panel to give the illusion of matting.
Hope you are having a wonderful, restful day and enjoyed my card. Isn't it wonderful to be creatively inspired by others ... I know that's what keeps my mojo going!! Thanks for stopping by and please come back!
