I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Have A Sweet Birthday

Hello stamping friends,

I hope you all had a good beginning to your week. I got home fairly early from work this afternoon which means I have time to post a card that I made yesterday for the Inspired By All the Little Things 50th Challenge. Congrats! to the DT! I find it fun to play along each week with their inspiration photos and the DT certainly comes up with gorgeous cards each week.

This week's Inspiration Photo is an elegant party table with the flowers, desserts, and twinkling lights in the background. Being me, I focused right in on that plate of yummy looking macarons! Here's my card and the Inspiration Photo underneath:

Besides the tray of cookies, I was inspired by the background greenery and twinkling lights in the inspiration photo.

My macarons are stamped with VersaMark and embossed with white EP on water color paper. I colored them with Prismacolor watercolor pencils. They are cut out with the corresponding Avery Elle dies and layered onto a "tray" made from another set of Avery Elle dies and corrugated kraft and gold card stock. The tiny leaves in the background are stamped in two shades of SU green inks.

The sentiment and image on the inside of the card are from the same Avery Elle set.

I hope you have a chance to play along to help the DT celebrate the 50th inspiration challenge this week.
