CCCB#37: Congratulations

The City Crafter Challenge Blog had an easy one this week: Stamp it Out! You can check it out here. No digital images allowed, just stamps. Easy for me since I've never tried a digital image.

My card is for my brother Brian and his new fiance Malia. We thought him a confirmed bachelor, so we were very happy to hear the good news. Malia is wonderful and we are overjoyed that she will be joining our family.

My inspiration for this card is the fabulous Jamie Pierson. I've been wanting to CASE this card of hers and this was the perfect opportunity. I switched up the colors and layout a bit, but kept the Presto Patterns DSP. This paper is so fun to play with. You can make it any color you'd like with some sponges or a brayer. I played around a bit and decided on Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. Love them together!


To finish off the card, I spritzed the sentiment and the medallion with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch. It added the perfect finishing touch.

This is in the mail this afternoon...hope they like it! Thanks for stopping by.
