Kristina's Color Inspiration #51: Wish






Happy Thursday! That means it's almost Friday! I decided around 11:00 last night to make a card for Kristina's Color Inspiration #51, what is wrong with me?! I'm getting my days and nights seriously messed up, which is not good, since I still work days! ugh!


Everything is SU except for the *wish* by Making Memories and the Cuttlebug Houndstooth embossing folder. I was reaching for the usual Polka Dots, but didn't see it and saw this one and really like the way it looks! Happy accident! The pleated ruffle, the houndstooth, and the herringbone rub-on really makes me think it's a "Fashion Week" card! lol!



Okay, gotta get moving, I'm afraid it's definitely going to be a *stop for a large coffee on the way to work" day! And I'm wishing I hadn't agreed to go to a vocabulary workshop after school from 4-8! Doh!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!



Recipe
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Rose Red, retired SU designer series paper.
Accessories: Corner Rounder, Curly Label Punch, Fashion District Rub-ons, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Crochet Flower, Latte Designer Button, Linen Thread, Making Memories "wish", Cuttlebug Houndstooth Embossing Folder.

This is a beautiful card, Angie! It sounds just like me, getting inspired just when I should be getting to bed instead of crafting... Every single morning, I wonder why I keep doing this to myself!

I wish I had gotten the Houndstooth bg stamp while it was still available - I really like the look!
