This week's Pals Paper Arts challenge is COLOR + Masculine, which is always a challenge for me. Don't forget to check out our Celebrity this week: Tanya Phillips
To begin, I made my card base of Crumb Cake.
I stamped my sentiment and the bird from Silhouette Sentiments (hostess) in Night of Navy onto Whisper White card stock and punched it (2 x 1-3/8" Oval).
I adhered the Oval to a 1-3/4" circle-punched Cherry Cobbler card stock and then adhered both to the Night of Navy matte and ran it through my Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder.
Next, I tied my Night of Navy 3/8" taffeta ribbon around with a knot and adhered all layers to my card base.
I added one of the flowers from the same stamp set in Night of Navy (Stampin' Write marker) onto a Mini Vintage Tag. I snipped off the knot on the cording and re-tied it around the knot of taffeta. I used a dimensional on the back to keep it in place.
What do you think? Did I inspire you at all? I'd love to read your comments. You can leave them below.
