Better Bit of Butter!

Hi All,

I'm hosting the Inspiration Challenge over on SCS this weekend and the website I chose is "Better Bit of Butter Cookies"!  I was attracted to the owner's CAS design style and that's how I ended up choosing her website.  OK, I admit, the cookies were tempting too!!

The cookie I went with as my inspiration is found here in the "Everyday Favorites" category.  It's the one on the top row, 2nd from the right, click photo to enlarge.  (Sorry, couldn't figure out how to isolate pictures of the cookies to show individually!)

"Flower Frames"

I used one of the flowers from this Woodware USA set called Flower Frames.  I repeatedly stamped the flower image in Versafine Onyx Black ink in the same pattern as the cookie design and then colored them with Copics. 

I layered the image onto black CS mat and tied a yellow dotted organza ribbon around it and added a small fabric rose.  That panel is adhered to the red, embosed CS square using dimensionals, and then onto a black mat.  I used he EK Success "Double Embossed Dotted Lace" border punch to create the scallop at the end of the front of the card base cover, then stamped a tiny solid flower from the same Woodware USA stamp set in red and black in the middle of each scallop.

Be sure to head over to SCS to play along in the IC this week!!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

Awesome site and sample, Anne!! I have a cookie inspiration all picked out for this challenge, glad I found this to get a headstart tonight.
Hope you have been doing well and enjoying the fall season. Billy and I are going to decorate tomorrow if it's not raining out. Should be fun!
