Inspired and Acetate

Happy Friday All!

Hope it's been a nice week for you and that you are looking forward to the weekend. Today being Friday means all new challenges at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something. We hope you will join in the fun and play along with us!

At JM this week we have our special monthly challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. This week we want to see you create a project using ACETATE! You must also use a Magnolia image on your creation to qualify for the prize.

For my card I created a pocket with acetate. I used some red and cream card stock with these fun Lazy Summer Magnolia papers. I stitched all the edges and then created the pocket with a piece of acetate. Inside the pocket is a happy birthday tag with Sweet Tilda. I colored her with Copics and then finished the tag with a jumbo eyelet, some ribbon, a charm and hemp twine, and some sticky gems on the corners. I've also embellished the card with flowers, lace, ribbon, and brads. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Creative Cottage: Acetate
Papertake Weekly: White and Bright
Cute Card Thursday: Whateva

Over at SS this week we have a photo inspiration challenge for you. You just need to take a look at the photo and create something that is inspired by the picture or colors or theme, etc. Our sponsor this week is Paper Jewels.

I decided to use both the colors and theme of this inspiration photo. I also used a CC Designs image as Paper Jewels carries this brand of stamps. The papers are DCWV from the Sweet Stack. I embellished with flowers, pearls, ribbon, and glimmer mist and Stickles. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Simon Says Stamp: Sing It Baby (my sentiment sings happy bday song)
7 Kids College Fund: Pink and Dots
Your Next Stamp: Birthdays

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you have a great weekend! And if you're up for a challenge please join in at JM and SS!

Happy Stamping,
