Beate posted a beautiful photo for inspiration and an invitation to cyber-stamp with her and Jenn. I used to stamp with these gals all the time and REALLY miss Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge that we used to do together, so I just HAD to play along! :)
Circus Circus set from Our Craft Lounge for my card. It is one of the newest releases from Our Craft Lounge. I colored the giraffe and hippo using Copics in colors from the inspiration photo. I die cut the image using the Beaded Oval Nestabilities and then die cut the same frame in Wild Wasabi cardstock. I cut out the "beaded" part of the die cut and attached it over the original. The pink cardstock is embossed using the Elegant Lines embossing folder from Stampin' Up. If you look at the inspiration photo closely, you can see that the pink tablecloth has an embossed pattern on it. Finally, I sewed around the card and tied some ribbon. So, are YOU going to play along with the inspiration photo? I hope so!
