This week's blogger challenge was to create a project using this picture of bed coverings as inspiration. Awesome color combo, huh? I'm not sure I'd want all of those striking colors in my bedroom, but it sure is great inspiration for my card this week. I just LOVE red, black and white together!
I needed to make an anniversary card for my in-law's upcoming 51st anniversary, so I took this opportunity to combine my "need" with my challenge.
I was so happy to finally receive my Top Note Bigz die from Stampin' Up! after waiting for what seemed to be forever while it was on back order. Since I've gotten it, I've been putting it to a lot of use. I trimmed my white piece along the perforated lines so that my black piece acted as a perfect mat. Take a peek on the inside of the card and you'll see that I used the left over from the black die cut cardstock to decorate the inside of the card, leaving a nice place to write a personal note.
I made my "band" by stamping two different stamps from the Guide Lines set from Papertrey Ink. Then added ribbon to the bottom and mounted that onto a scalloped edge.
It will be really interesting to see what all the other Blogger's Challenge players do with their inspiration piece today. If you click the Blogger's Challenge logo along the left-hand sidebar of my blog, you'll find a list along with links to their blogs. I hope you will check them out.
Thanks for checking in today. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend filled with lots of sparklie love. :)
