Vera's View At Lily Pad Cards!

Hey there!

We've got a new inspiration challenge for you at Lily Pad Cards! Vera chose the photo this time and it's a fun one!

Don't ya just love all those pretty colors?! We are sponsored this time by Stamp Camp and the prize is a good one! Stamp Camp has TONS of stamps in a huge variety! I was lucky to get to play with a beautiful background stamp, along with a sweet birdcage set that I love! Here's my card:

I wanted to incorporate the brown background from the photo onto my card, so I stamped the pretty, script and vines called, Love Fulfilled, onto the kraft card base with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I white embossed one of the birdcages from the set, four times, onto white paper, then shaded them with Distress Inks, cut them out and added them to the panel with dimensional adhesive.

The white chains, which the birdcages hang from, were done with a white gel pen for two reasons. They would have been too difficult to cut out and I wanted them at different lengths, hanging from the vines. The sentiment was also white embossed and is from a beautiful set from Hero Arts - love the font!

Now head on over to Lily Pad Cards to read all about this fun challenge! You'll also get to see some fab cards from my teamies! We'd love it if you'd play along!

Thanks so much for your visit! :)
