{ nancy inspired card }

Yesterday Nancy posted this pretty card on her blog, so I decided to sorta copy it. Of course once I got to my stamping table I'd forgotten exactly what her card looked like, so this is what I came up with.

The colors I used are Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Brocade Blue, Certainly Celery. The bits of ribbon are from Costco. I used SU Trimtastic and SU Everyday Flexible Phrases and the Birthday Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.

On Nancy's card she swiped the embossed part with white craft ink using a paper towel. Well, I thought I would save 3 and a half seconds by grabbing a kleenex and doing the same thing - big mistake! The kleenez left bits of, well, kleenex all over the ink pad!

See my neat ribbon filled vase? My stamp room (corner) is undergoing a makeover, so that is a little sneak peek. Once I get it all organized I will take more pics!

Thanks Nancy for the inspiration for this card!


  1. You're very welcome Cindy.... and yours is beautiful!

  2. Just catching up on your last couple of blogs. Love everything you've posted. Your new picture of yourself is fantastic also. If your ribbon jar is any indication of your craft room makeover, I'm already jealous!
