Lily Pad Cards Inspirational Challenge #1

This is my second post of the day, please scroll down to see my last preview for Sweet November Stamps' Flitter Friend release. Thanks! =)

Happy weekend, all! =) I am sharing a card for this week's challenge over at Lily Pad Cards.


It's Inspirational Challenge this week. The challenge is to make a card inspired by anything that has appeared on Lily Pad Cards. I was inspired by this card created by Deborah.


I mirrored Deborah's design to fit my image. This stamp is called Cherry on Top from Lili of the Valley. I adore these little mice! =) It's stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock then colored with Copic markers. The image is then cut and embossed using a Lables 17 die. The sentiment is cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die.


The patterned paper is from the Pixie collection by Memory Box. The red/pink piece is cut using the Fancy Hearts border die from Whiff of Joy Stamps. The sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.

Don't forget to hop over to Lily Pad Cards and check out what the other Dream Team member came up with for this challenge.

Funny how some of you (okay, one) asked me if there is a third post yesterday. This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but I really didn't want to bug you with one more card. Thus a second two-post day... But really, if you consider this card and this project. I really had four posts yesterday. LOL! Oh, and I watched the Royal Wedding LIVE! =) No, I don't sleep.



Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
