Sepia Congratulations

It's Sunday, so it's Featured Stamper Challenge time again!!  Today the honour goes to NCSUnikki - congratulations Nikki!!!  :)  This would have to be the fastest card I've made in a looooooong time - but I just loved Nikki's The Neutral Party card and just HAD to case it!!  :)

I started with a base of Very Vanilla, layered with Close to Cocoa and more Vanilla.  I stamped the sentiment from As You Graduate at the bottom and then embossed the panel with Nat EF.  I attached some May Arts ribbon around these panels.  I stamped the image from ODBD's As You Graduate in Memento Rich Cocoa onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (E00, E31, E33, E37, E37) and sponged the sky with a little Antique Linen.  I cut out the image and framed it with Cocoa cut with Label 8 Nestabilities and popped it up on some foam tape.  To finish I added some Kaisercraft Latte Pearls to the biggest butterfly and a big bow to the ribbon.

Stamps - As You Graduate (ODBD) 
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa 
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa 
Accessories - Copics, Label 8 Nestabilities, Nat EF, May Arts Satin Ribbon, Foam Tape.   

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

Kathy, I just love the card in your last post. The verse on that card holds a very special meaning to me. It kind of held me all together last year when life was tough. I love what you have done with it in the form of this card. Just gorgeous. Your work is always beautiful and truely inspiring.

Kathy - this is totally beautiful. Wow! Reminds me of a poem. What a great case/creation. I shouldn't have stayed away from your gallery so long -I can see I have missed tons of inspiration.
