Moments That Take Our Breath Away

This is the first time I’ve played with digital paper to make a card. I had purchased the papers that go with the Lovely Shelf stamp set from Gina K. Designs, but used them here with a sentiment from the Sweetest Memories set. It was fun to be able to change the size of the images, especially so I could get the right size lace flowers for my build-a-brads!

The sentiment was stamped with the retired Baroque Burgundy ink from Stampin’ Up!, which seemed to go well with these colors, and cut out with a Nestie. Unfortunately I don’t own a Copic Airbrush System, so I made do with a plain old sponge to add a little bit of color on the label while it was still sitting inside the die.

Thanks for stopping by!
