The InspiRING

I signed up to be part of an InspiRING back in September on Amy's blog (Gone INKognito)... what is an InspRING you ask? Well, check out this link to get the Overview AND Rules!

So here's a picture to the card I received from Lori W....

I was to get inspired by this card and take something from it and make my own card. It could be the colors, the layout, ANYTHING... well, here's what I came up with:

I took the general layout from the first card. I was also going to use the ribbon, but felt I didn't have room on this card. I really liked how this card came out. All ingredients are SU: Season of Joy, Label set from Hostess choices (forgot the name lol), Always Artichoke and Bravo Burgundy. I did use a now retired DSP from last year. I think it's called Rebecca. I also used the new corner rounder to scallop both top and bottom and then used a 1/16th hole punch and eyeballed each hole on each scallop. The brads (both circle and star) and the bling on the tree are non SU. Oh and I'm pretty sure I used the Sakura Gel Pen, but that goes w/o saying now doesn't it?? hehehe

Okay, I'm off to put the kiddos to bed (they're running off their ice cream sugar high lol) then I will be working on my 3 Christmas cards for my Par-tay tomorrow night. I've decided to showcase the versatility of the Season of Joy set and make all three cards from it! Can you believe it?! I've made 2 so I thought what's one more?? Silly me! hehehe

Then I've got to make a couple of door prizes and a hostess gift. Oh and work on some more Craft show goodies if I have time. I will show you guys what I made for last Saturday's craft show.

Very pretty card. I like the swirls coming out of the round sentiment.
