You Inspire Me

Hello Blog friends, I am sharing a shabby card with you today, using some of the things that are 'gathering' on my desk.....it is my form of cleaning my desk! LOL!  Any excuse to create!!

I have used a printed image that I have had for a number of years (can you believe that!?!?) It is cut by hand and mounted onto a stamped image from Stampin' Up, using Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L- 3D Foam Squares.  The image has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and Labels Twenty-Three Spellbinders® Nestabilities®.  The Die has been used as a Stencil, sponging the inside using IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Delicata™ Pigment Ink in Golden Glitz.  This has been adhered to the card base using 3D Foam Squares.

A double Seam Binding bow has been adhered to the side of the card, using liquid glue followed by a button and a pearl from Want2Scrap© 72 Count - White Pearls - Self Adhesive.

The bling border is from Want2Scrap©  - Beautiful Bling Borders! by Nina Brackett - Beautiful Blooms.
