Newest Challenge.

Over at The House that Stamps Built there is another
Designer’s Choice Challenge DCC425.. 
We have to create a card for a woman we love.
My card is for a dear lady who recently turned 90. She is what I call our adopted Mum as she took my husband under her wing with her own son when they went to school and played soccer together. She has been a part of our lives for such a long time and is such a precious person. We love her dearly.

My base card stock is irredescent silver topped in apricot embossed pearl paper, with scored lines in middle top and bottom. The Spellbinders Poinsettia Dies (flower and leaves) are popped on top of the Cherry Lynn Italian Flourish and finished with a pearl centre. Tagged with Spellbinders Fancy Tags, apricot ribbon and 90 cut out with Cuttlebug.

Hope you all have been able to spend some time doing what we love best - Crafting. Thanks for looking and do hope you like my card. Ina.

Ina, your work always sets me back, this is no exception. I love the mixture of shapes and colors and lines you always use. Just when I think I've seen every possible layout for a card, you go and create a new one. LOVE that about your work. ;)

I hope this finds you well and getting to enjoy your weekend. Thank you so much for your encouraging comments on my recipe box. That meant the world to me!

Off to peruse more of your cards.
Hugs to you Ina,
Lisa xx
