'Because' you inspire me...

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for
with another month of Great Challenges.
We start off with - 
Our Host Bobby choosing Script!
for our Word Challenge.
We also start our month with a new Guest Designer 
and I am excited to have Chrissie Stokes joining us.
Welcome Chrissie!

There are times when you start on a card and in the end
isn't just how you want it to be.
This happened here after a couple of failed attempts
and still not happy with how it looks.
I have a scripted background as well as my sentiment.
The floral Uniko image is a gift (Thank you Mac)
 and I chose the wording on this card
because it is exactly how I feel.
Your creativity really does inspire me!
The background is inked with
Lindy's Salt Water Taffy
(the lightest pink I could find)
and script in black
Also backed with the same pink
although hard to see.
The lovely floral stamp is heat embossed with
yellow glitter powder.
Adhered to black card base.
I have some other ideas for this lovely stamp
so you will see it again to show it off as it should be. 
Pop over and see what our Talented Guest Chrissie 
and Team scripted then come join in
with yours in our Gallery.
You could be our Chic of the Week
and in the running as our Guest in September.
Thanks for dropping in

Another fabulous background

Bobby said...

I don't know what you saw in your mind, Ina, but this looks fantastic to me. I love how the color changes in the background and the script adds to the mixed media feel.

You did an amazing inking and stamping job, Ina The floral image and the script background work so well together.
