Today's creation features a darling Yumi & Fumi Handmade stamp "Winter Yumi". I think she's just the cutest thing, and couldn't wait to work with her again. When I saw the last challenge on their blog, I was hoping to have time to create - the challenge was the gorgeous inspiration photo shown below. Here is my card:
|I have the hardest time getting a good photo with metallic cardstocks!
|Doesn't this photo just make you go 'oooooh.....aaahhhhhhh' - SO pretty!
I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, metallic gold CS from Our Daily Bread, and some ribbon from my stash. All coloring was with Copics, from the 'E' family! Yumi's hat, scarf, and boots are 'dusted' with a bit of clear 'Wink of Stella' pen. And, of course, my beautiful, even layers are created with my Perfect Layers Rulers. I rarely create without them!!! See sidebar for details on saving 5% with an order.
This card is going to my Senior Buddy that I am a card angel for. If any of you are interested in becoming a card angel (what an awesome way to use all these cards we create), drop me an email at: mamagilliam at gmail dot com for details!) They have Chemo Angels and Senior Angels. Basically, you commit to sending a card a week to someone going through a difficult time.
I'm entering this in the Yumi & Fumi Challenge - Inspiration Photo
and also Through the Craftroom Door - anything goes.
That's all I have for today! Thanks for dropping by!
Hugs & smiles,
