Celebration Card

I'm participating in the Muse Challenge #106 this week.


I tried some new (to me) products on this card. The stamp set I used is from Mama Elephant and is called Make a Wish. I stamped my sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed with Liquid Platinum by Ranger. The stars are from the same set, and I tried a couple of newly purchased inks: Simon Says Stamp's Audrey Blue and Hero Arts' Fresh Peach.

The multicolored strip is cut from the Mama Elephant packaging. The colors seemed just right to use with this card. This is a very basic, simple card and it was a great opportunity to test drive some new things. I think this card will end up in a box sent to Operation Write Home.

Here is the inspiration image from the Muse blog:


As you can see, I borrowed multiple elements from this card. The simple panel to the left with all the stamping concentrated towards the bottom and also the stamping on the far right of the card front.

Happy crafting!

Just love all the colour on your card and how fabulous to be able to use packaging as an embellishment!! That's so creative. Your sentiment looks beautiful in silver and really like the two ink colours you combined for the stars. Thank you so very much for joining me at Muse this week, your card is awesome!
