Basic Grey Cappella Rocks!!
Hosting the IC over on SCS once more this weekend (thanks Stephanie!!). This week the inspiration website is Huset Shop.
My card for the IC this weekend was inspired by this rich print by Lisa Bengtsson Baronessa.
Received my new goodies from Frantic Stamper JUST in time for this challenge so of course I had to use them to make this card!! :) Everything -- top to bottom, inside and out -- on this card can be purchased from Fran -- you must visit her store!! The most current and unique supply of goodies on the web and her customer service is impeccable!! Tell her I sent ya!! ;)
So here's the deets:
Basic Grey's newest Cappella line! Oh my!! I think this is my most favorite BG collection ever!! The colors are earthy and soft, romantic and vintage all at once! Wow!! I also used the fun coordinating Cappella Ribbon Doilies. The doilie ribbons are delicate paper and adhesive backed -- gotta love it!!
Made the oval with Nestibilities and stamped it with the Happy Birthday sentiment from Inkadinkadoo's Personal Impressions Sentiment stamps. I stamped the sentiment twice, once in Ranger Walnut Stain and once in StazOn black to get a vintage looking color of ink. I highlighted it a bit with a white Signo Gel pen.
Next I used EK Success Embossed Curve border punch along the bottom of the solid cream colored DP. Layered it onto the patterned piece, then applied the moss colored ribbon doilie to the seam.
Then I used these fun and intricate Cruly-Qs peel-offs by Sticker King! If you haven't used peel-offs, DO IT NOW!! They are so versatile, forgiving, easy to use, and cheap ($1.99)!! Fran has tons of them in her store...these particular ones are Item #SK-123071G from the Frantic Stamper in case you're interested! I am going to be going back for more!!

These things sparkle like nothing else! They have teeny glass bits (seriously chunky) that stand out from a mile away!!
Hope you like the card! And come join me in the IC this weekend!!
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
