Thinking of You

Today while watching the Chicago Bears loose, ugh!, I was creative in my craft room.  I really wanted to participate in the Moxie's Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week Challenges.  This card is for the Metallic Color Challenge and the DeNami Sketch Challenge #6.

I just got a new shipment of DeNami stamps and had to use them for the challenges.  I used the DeNami Hearts Stamp set to create the patterned paper with Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink.  You might not see them all, but I did use all 4 of them.  Next was the Love Swans.  This is such a pretty stamp.  I used the Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink and embossed it with clear powder.  The sentiment is DeNami also, and I embossed that too.  Once I had everything laid out together I knew something was missing.  I looked through my ribbon and found the perfect addition, add in some pearls and I had all the pieces to complete this card.

Here are the inspiration photos ...
