July inspiration challenge at In Love With Stamping

This is our inspirational challenge for July over at In Love With Stamping:

Certainly a challenge! The wallpaper reminded me a little of Bella Toile and so I took that for my starting point and created this:

Stamp sets: Bella Toile, Oval All
Cardstock: Pink Passion, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla
Ink: Pink Passion, Close to Cocoa
Punches: Scallop Oval, Large Oval
Taffeta Ribbon: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Other: Hat Pin, Beads, Halfback Pearl (Pretties Kit)

With the lush hatpin and beads from the Pretties Kit and the taffeta ribbon as my focus, I decided to keep the layout of the card fairly simple. I stamped Bella Toile onto Very Vanilla card with Close to Cocoa and matted this flat onto Close to Cocoa card and then a Pink Passion card blank. The Best Wishes sentiment was stamped onto Very Vanilla card with Pink Passion ink and punched with the Large Oval. This was matted direct onto Pink Passion card punched with the Scallop Oval. The hatpin was made up with Pearl and Clear beads (and spacer beads in between) and tied with Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon. I rolled glue dots around the stem of the hatpin to keep the beads in place. The sentiment was popped up on a double layer of dimensionals and adhered over the hatpin to keep it in place. A halfback pearl was added to the sentiment to complete it and tie in with the hatpin.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

This is a gorgeous card. I love evrything about it. The colours are brilliant and you were right to keep the card simple as the Bella Toile stamp is so pretty and makes great cards on its own.
