Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #110

Hi , 

its challenge time at Addicted to Stamps and More! This fortnight we have a gorgeous inspiration picture for you:




I used my favorite Papertrey Woodgrain embossing plate, which I inked up with grey Memento Luxe ink and ran it through my Big Shot using light grey card stock. The beautiful daffodil stamp is by STAMPlorations -  Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments. I heat embossed it in silver and colored it with Copics. The sentiment is from the same set.


Some how this card turned into a Sympathy card - did not really plan to make one, but the end results fits that best. I hope I won't need it soon......

We have a generous sponsor this week - its


The winner will receive 3 free digis of her choice!

So come on over to the ATSM challenge blog and get some inspiration from our wonderfully creative DT and we hope you find time to join in the fun!

Your card is beautiful and somehow perfect for a Sympathy card and I also hope you don't need it anytime soon. Your background is amazing! xx

Your woodgrain background is fabulous. I can see that the color lends itself to a sympathy card.

Great take on the photo! The frills of the ballerina are echoed perfectly in your flower petals, and such a great effect created by inking up your embossing folder, I really must try that! x

Hi Cornelia. Love the you've inked gray on top of gray paper ... gives a beautiful, subtle woodgrain design. The silver embossing on your flower adds lovely sparkle to the card. Loll xx

Back to work this week has disrupted my blogging time; I think blog-visiting and commenting should be part of my job description! Your card here is a gorgeous take on the inspiration photo; such an amazing background with the embossing plate. Of course, I'm in love with the way you've showcased the STAMPlorations bloom. Beautiful card in every way!
