Allison's Suggestive Sunday

I finally got to play along with one of Allison's challenges tonight - this week she challenged us to only use words for the stamped image (AFSS25). I love this sentiment from Stampin' Up!, so it was an easy choice to pull it out for this card. The flowers are the ones they sell by the can at Michael's in the wedding section - these happened to be a RAK from Monica (thanks Monica!!). I just pulled out my Copic marker and colored them - I chose "slate" to match the Very Vintage cardstock. I also used something I rarely seem to go toward lately - gold brads. If you saw my little container where I keep my silver and gold brads you'd see good visual proof that I favor silver - I have hardly any of those, but a huge mess of gold! That's about it for this card - I need to get this posted and get to bed, I'm completely exhausted. I foolishly stayed up until the wee hours last night, getting caught up on my blog reading!! I knew as I was doing it I'd regret it today - sure enough, I'm tired and crabby. :-) So off to bed I go! Oh, and if you haven't already, make sure and wish Allison a happy birthday!!
  • Stamps: All Holidays from Stampin' Up!
  • Paper: Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Vintage Violet, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Always Artichoke, Slate Copic marker

  1. Ooo, I love the cluster of flowers - it has such a wow factor. I'm glad someone in Austin is playing with Copics - that's my next adventure, I hope. Just gotta figure out how to get them on the keep-hubby-happy finace plan.

  2. This looks great Libby...those flowers look like must haves! And the paisley embossing folder here is perfect especially when you don't cheat and use DP like I always do! Thanks for playing!

  3. This is so pretty Libby...and I love all of your flowers with the brads!!

  4. Oh, I love the Vintage Violet. It is so pretty in there!

  5. This is such a soft pretty card - love how you colored the flowers and added the brads! I don't use gold either - always silver! I emailed SU and asked them to start selling white and black brads in bulk too - I hope they do - I would use them all the time. I keep wanting to play along with your challenges, but I have a hard time doing anything on time! LOL! But one of these days. I love the pictures of Courtney - she is such a doll!!

  6. The flowers are beautiful and look perfect with your cardstock choices! Really neat card!

  7. Love the elegance of your card, Libby. Gorgeous!!

  8. Love this simple card -- very attractive!!!!

  9. Oh, I like the way this looks! Love the Vintage Violet and Moss combo. All the flowers on the front are a great way to help fill up some space. I have this CB folder and seem to keep waiting for the right card to come along to use it. I don't know what I'm looks perfect on your card!


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
