Okay, so one day I AM going to have an original idea in my head. Guess what? Today is not that day. My card today was inspired by this card created by Ann Schach. I love the Vintage Vogue stamp set in the Stampin' Up! Occassions Mini. The best part is, is that this set is going to be in the new 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. Hooray!!! I love, love, love vintage. You just can't go wrong with it - know what I mean?
My color combination consists of Basic Gray, Kraft, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry. I used a Basic Gray corduroy brad and some silver brads to jazz things up a bit. (I'm also trying to quit hoarding and start using all these great products.) If you look closely you might notice I used the Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch for the leaves of my flower. The bird's wing in this punch makes excellent leaves. Gotta love that! I also pulled out my sponges to give the card a more vintage feel.
I'm glad to see that Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo will be returning as part of Stampin' Up!'s color collection in July. I have to admit that the idea of retiring some of the current Stampin' Up! colors terrified me at first, but I am embracing the change. I may be embracing the change slowly, but I am embracing it. I actually think I'm going to be excited about it after I absorb it.
Well, that's it for me today. I'm heading to Bible Study in a couple hours. We're studying about the role of a family and the component that every individual plays in a family. It's good stuff and really makes you think about your role in the family. Well, that and it makes me realize that I need to step up to the plate a little more and try harder to keep my family a spiritual family. Thanks for peeking in on me today! Have a beautiful evening blogging friends!
